The Worst That Could Happen – We Forget

I worry.  If I don’t have enough to worry about today, I’ll worry about tomorrow.  And if that’s not enough, I’ll worry about years from now.  I like to know I’m getting my money’s worth out of my high blood pressure medication.  Right now, I worry we may forget.  

At some point we’ll all get back to some semblance of a new normal.  We don’t know what that is, but I worry that we will forget the lessons we’re learning right now – the things we’ve grown to appreciate because we can’t have them.  Like closeness.  Having it ripped away from us has underscored how much we want-it-need-it-value-it.  We never had to think about it, so we took it for granted.  Now that it’s gone, we notice how much we need it.   We notice how much we need each other and value the closeness of our friends, and relatives, and business relationships. God made us human.  And humans are social creatures.  Zoom faces are fine for a while.  But you can’t Zoom your heart and soul.   To get to know someone – the true spirit of who they are . . . you need to be closer than 6 feet – or at least closer than a Zoom shot.  At least that’s how I see it.
