As of today, my children have been home 234 hours that they would have been in school. This does not include the hours they are home when they would have been in hockey and swimming.
234 hours. I know its daunting for everyone. I get frustrated and overwhelmed myself at times. Its a lot. But do you know what else I think it is? Amazing.
234 hours that I wasn’t “supposed” to have with my children, I am getting. I get to have this amazing time that I’ve always said I longed for. How many times did I reflect on the fact that I missed when I had 3 littles under 3 and we were just together? Now I have my 3 not-so-little littles here again. Together.
I know these are hard times. But I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge this giant pause as an enormous blessing too. I get to be an even more hands-on mom! Time is something we don’t typically get back but I am! You are! Revel in it. Look at the silver lining that it is.
