The last 30 to 45 days have been truly an exercise in perseverance through suffering for me and for my family. In early August we were all stricken with the coronavirus. Then on August 21st, my mother-in-law passed away due to a non-COVID related illness.
These significant life events have challenged my ability to write. Instead, I want to share a piece I wrote nearly 12 months ago entitled Pain & Suffering are Necessary. I think it accurately describes my feelings and outlook on my family’s current events.
Thank you to everyone who has reached out to us via email, text, and social media during this time. We will take all the prayers and positive thoughts we can get.
