This pandemic is worldwide. First we didn’t believe it, then it snowballed into an avalanche. Every corner of the world felt the impact. So many lives lost and livelihoods halted.
It is definitely getting better overall. Still hard and different, but we feel extra grateful for all the good in our lives. This weekend Jews all over the world celebrated Rosh Hashana, the Jewish New Year 5781. We were actually able to be in a synagogue, with masks and socially distanced, yet praying together.
It was so nice to get dressed up, for kids to play together, and so many creative ways to hear the Shofar in backyards and gatherings. It was interesting how word of mouth led everyone to where they felt comfortable to celebrate. There was no promotion or advertisements to limit the amount of attendees, and luckily there were many options.
I got a last minute call to support a client at home in labor, and once we got to the hospital, the couple was not allowed to bring any other support because of COVID. Thank God for modern technology, I was able to keep coaching them from my phone. My prayers and energy were with them throughout the holiday. I was so happy to hear that after a very long labor, a healthy nine pound baby was in the world.
Right before the New Year my wonderful neighbor asked me to pray for her son Ali, who was very ill. I felt so grateful to have all of these people in my life, and that I could hold space and send positive energy their way.
Human connection and relationships are so vital, and what I have missed most throughout the lockdown away from family and friends. We are blessed to be able to connect online, but it is not the same as seeing each other in person.
May healing happen instantly worldwide.
Let us all live life to the fullest, and serve our purpose in this world.
Wishing Everyone Love, Health, Happiness and Success!
