The Silver Lining from the COVID-19 Cloud

Please do yourself a favor, folks, and stop by Don Massenzio’s blog to read his post today. Hands down, this is the best post I’ve seen so far about the situation we are all struggling with right now. The poem Don shared is wonderful, and his thoughts on what we can learn from this experience are perfection. After having read this, I feel better than I’ve felt for a week! I hope it will uplift and inspire you as much as it did me, and that you’ll pass it along to everyone you know! I’m even thinking of making a copy to pin on my cork board so I’ll be reminded of these things when my spirits sink. Please share, thanks, and my heartfelt thanks to Don, too, for pointing out the silver lining! 🙂 ❤
