Pages from a pandemic diary
By Donna J. Jodhan

No one ever expected that this pandemic would last this long. Over the past
18 months plus there is so much that I have learned, experienced, and
witnessed. I am going to share a few pages of my pandemic diary.

Patience! I have learned to develop and cultivate more patience and I have
done this by listening more closely and carefully to those around me and
finding ways to develop my patience. This has come through my playing more
chess games via email against wonderful folks in England, taking time to
play my piano, and going out of my way to put myself in the shoes of others.

Perseverance! I have certainly learned how to persevere more and not to
give up too easily and quickly. I have learned to develop ways to think
more frequently outside the box. I have learned to be more creative and
innovative and to find work arounds whenever obstacles appear unexpectedly.

Passion! I have learned to develop more passion for the persons and things
that I care so deeply about. This has probably been one of the hardest
things for me to cope with during the pandemic but I have done my best to
stick with it and to keep plugging away.

I continue to live in eternal hope! To hope that some day in the very near
future this pandemic will recede to the point where a new brand of normalcy
will slip into our lives and that we will be able to start smiling and
laughing more!

We must go on! If not for ourselves but for our kids! For each other and
one another! We need to look out for each other; not just ourselves!
Just my two cents for today!
