As COVID hits closer to home with more and more friends of ours coming down with it, it’s caused me to more and more realize and appreciate how precious each day we are given truly is…each day of health our family has is a day to be treasured and appreciated to the fullest.
As much as I hate COVID and I want to see it disappear from the earth, I cannot deny that COVID coming into my life has helped me to grow and change like nothing has before. It has helped me become more introspective, it has softened my heart, it’s humbled me, it’s helped me become quicker to apologize and faster to forgive, it’s forced me to strengthen my relationship with my husband and its helped me recognize the need for me to always make my family my highest priority, it has turned my heart toward my Savior more than ever before and it has taught me the importance of staying earnest with daily prayers.
COVID has ultimately helped given me a better perspective of what really matters in life and what doesn’t and it’s made me more grateful and appreciative of everything.
All that said, I still very much want to see COVID disappear from the earth, but I am grateful for what COVID has done to help me become a better person and for how its made me want to work hard each day to become better still.
