The past few weeks have been tough for everyone. But as an adult, I feel that I can find ways to cope. What pains me is when I can’t make it better for my daughters.
Sophia has said, more than once today, that she misses her teachers and friends. And that is something that I can’t make better. She understands that there is a virus and that she can’t go to school. But she does not have a concept of time and she doesn’t understand how long this will really last.
As a mom, this pains me so much. I am trying to make everything as fun as possible and to follow her lead. I want my happy go lucky Sophia back. She is struggling even more with her outbursts. Things that have worked in the past are not working now.
So I will hug her a little more. I will be patient with her. I will follow her lead. I will pray that I can comfort her.
