My Dear Friends,
What a strange time we're in. I honestly have struggled to find the words to address COVID-19 and its rapid suffocation of our world. It's something that has been on my mind constantly--not only because my family and I are engaged in social distancing, but because I have a husband who is a doctor, a cancer-recovering mother-in-law, and a 37-week pregnant friend living in New York City. I'm sure you, too, have a personal connection to the concern of this pandemic or an equally broken heart from the damage this virus has caused. It's unsettling and grievous.
Along with all this darkness though, are little specks of light--small illuminations that provide hope, optimism, and joy. What beautiful things we could use right now in our world. Although we are not able to gather with one another for a lively soirée, I would like to uplift each other by inviting joy into others' lives during this uncertain time. Each day for the rest of the month, I will be sharing something on social media that brings me joy (and hopefully you, too!) during this time.
I invite you to join me in illuminating the virtual world with specks of light. Share hope, optimism and what makes you happy, using the hashtag #HostingJoy. Come spread light with me. Let's share a brilliance of hope, positivity, and happiness within our current situations, so that we can look back on this time as a moment that we chose joy over fear.
