The Covid-19 virus is an unknown. And it has shaken us to our core in whirlwind fashion.
Never in my life would I have thought that NCAA March Madness, the Masters, Major League Baseball, the NHL, NBA, and Kentucky Derby would be postponed—or cancelled altogether.
Or would I see grocery store shelves ravaged under normal weather conditions. Or businesses issuing mandatory work from home orders.
The good news is that there are signs of abatement in China, where the disease originated. It also brings me some solace that for most people, the disease will result in flu-like symptoms for a while and will not be fatal. Of course older people with a history of respiratory illness must be ultra-cautious.
I’ve always been a believer that all things happen for a reason, and as the human race grapples with this dilemma, I hope that there is some good that comes from it.
There is more to life than a 401k balance and a luxury cruise. Now that those have been taken away, perhaps we can concentrate on God, health, family, and freedom.
That’s the way it should have been all along. We just got a little off track.
Wishing you good health and peace of mind.
