The year 2020 is one that will be remembered by generations to come…The Covid 19 Pandemic…
We are learning and have learnt and still learning… to live with the Covid 19 Pandemic.It’s been almost a year when we have all been at home and learnt multitasking.It’s been a tough time for you parents especially for you dear mums and of course you all dear children.We have all learnt to do things together and to live with each other the best way we can .We have had happy times,sad times, trying times,difficult times and easy times and frustrating times, wondering how to manage ourselves. We have learnt not to take things for granted but to be always grateful for all that we have….a home to live in,friends and family and all our daily needs.The world will be a changed place when things become normal or I should say near normal .here are some pictures which say it all:-
Learning to do things at home.
Working together and multi-tasking
Pearls of Wisdom :
………Let’s think of small things in life which we always took for granted.
Let’s be Grateful for Each New Day in our lives.
Let’s be grateful for everything in our lives.
Value our Loved Ones.
We have had a quality family time,were mum,dad, children,grandparents and relations have been home together.We have all been busy in the rat race of life and had forgotten what family bonding means.We grew closer to our loved ones and realised what they like ,what they don’t .We have learnt how important it is to respect each other and to value each other’s work and time.
We have learnt how to share work and help each other .No work is difficult to do whether it is sweeping ,mopping ,washing or cooking.We have learnt time management and multi-tasking.
We have learnt to be grateful and thankful for all that we have got.We have learnt how to manage with simple and small amounts of everything we use… food, provisions, daily requirements.The joy of simple homemade food and the importance of eating meals together.
Caring and sharing .The joy of giving and realising how lucky we are to have a home and loved ones.Respecting each other and understanding how everyone’s work is important.Most importantly, we have learnt to value our house help and realised how much work they did for us.
We have all in someway or the other helped the less fortunate…The Joy of Giving.
The Covid lockdown has made us observant. We have seen things in the house and outside which we took for granted and learnt to appreciate all things big and small.We suddenly realised how beautiful the world is .Every tree, flower and bird chirping looked so beautiful .The sky with the setting sun and clouds made us gasp with excietment and made us want to capture that simple moment in a photo and maybe we shared with others.
We have learnt the fun of connecting with our long lost friends and relations.Respect and care for senior citizens.
We rediscovered ourselves.Remembering our old hobbies and trying them out again.We realised the joy of being just by ourselves.. just sitting and staring into space which we may not have done for a iong time.. as we were too busy running around.
Most of all, we have learnt the meaning of life and how to live and be happy with whatever we have. Everything big or small needs to be nurtured and respected.We all have our own little stories that the lockdown has made us experience.
Ofcouse all the time has not been happy .There were and will be difficult days.Times when we feel how will we carry on .We have lost our tempers and had bad moods.We have learnt to control and discipline ourselves.
Be patient.. this too will pass.Be strong and stand by each other and we will come out into a better world and be better people.Let us not give up and keep doing our best in whatever way we can.
So…OUR PEARLS OF WISDOM are:
To be loving, caring and patient.
To Respect others and ourselves.
The importance of simple food and simple exercise.
Being observant not missing even the smallest things that are around us.
Making Gratefulness our daily habit.
We should stick to these after the covid lockdown and become better human beings and the world a better place to live in.
