It’s okay not to be okay.
Right now, things in the world are not okay, but I’ve been talking to your kids and they are doing just fine.
They love the walks you’re taking together as a family. They love gathering around the dinner table. Game nights and movie nights make them laugh and cry and they’re grateful they get to share them with you. They love that their beloved older siblings are home from college. Yes, they miss their friends, but they’re discovering you and that means the world to them.
You have done this. You have taught them to look for the light amidst the darkness. You have shown them that God shows up in our pain. You have let them know that it is okay not to be okay and they love you for it.
They love you.
