Thoughts at Days End After COVID-19

When this is over, may we never again take for
granted a handshake with a stranger, full shelves
at the store, conversations with neighbors, a crowded 
theater, Friday night out, the taste of communion,
a routine checkup, the school rush each morning,
coffee with a friend, the stadium roaring, each 
deep breath, a boring Tuesday, and life itself.

When this ends, may we  find that we
have become more like the people
we wanted to be, we were called to be,

we hoped to be, and may we stay that way.....
better for each other because of the worst!
