Silver Linings

One silver lining that has come out of our social distancing is that I’m hearing from friends I haven’t heard from in awhile.  

Over the last 5 days, I’ve received random texts, emails, Facebook messages, and YES, even phone calls asking, “How are you and your family doing?” and “I hope you guys are all well,” and the occasional “Help, I’m going insane and I need to talk to another human adult for 5 minutes.”  

It’s funny how those little interactions, no matter how brief, can make you feel connected again.  

My data team had a virtual meeting today and it felt good to see those familiar faces you see every day.  It makes social distancing a lot less isolating.

  1. I agree, Sharon! I actually can talk to my mom and not have to save it for the drive home and then have to interrupt her with “OK I am home now. Let me call you later” and then I never do because the busyness of the household gets to me!
