Quarantine. How does this word make you feel when you read it? Simply amazing how powerful one word can be. The power to cause so many different emotions when you read or hear it.
When I hear this word I honestly feel saddened. We were not designed to live in quarantine without social interaction. When we feel lonely, depression can come on. Depression sucks enthusiasm out of us opening a whole other door of problems.
Our physical health and safety is important, but we need to make sure we are taking care of our mental health as well. One way I keep my mind healthy is doing devotionals, diving into the word. Facebook messenger has been another source I have used to share videos, stories, etc. With family and friends.
I honestly have been the busiest, during this quarantine, than ever. Entertaining kids has been a full time plus job. We have tried so many different craft projects, activities, and games. Unfortunately, like us the kids need interaction as well. We have made several drives just to get them out of the house. We also spend a lot of time explaining to them what is going on so they have somewhat of an understanding. Communication is the best way to be there for your children and others.
It is very important we are there for others during these times. Please share in the comments what you have been doing! We’d love to read your ideas!
