Coronavirus. Covid-19. Corona. The Virus. Delta variant.
I hope that by now we have educated ourselves on the Pandemic. And that we are keeping ourselves up-to-date with the new developments and new instructions. In addition, emphasising the prayerful, fervent hope to rid ourselves of this dreadful scourge. God willing, we must, do this.
It goes without saying, that we all must still stick with the SOPs, don face masks, observe the required distance, and, most imperative, have the mandatory two doses of the vaccine.
All the above directions, including other vital rules that I may have overlooked, must be, and should be, strictly adhered to.
Now, to get down to brass tacks..
While this volatile virus reigns, let us not forget to be grateful for the beauty of life.
Whenever a new day dawns, pause to notice the spectacular and stunning blessings that surround us — it is God’s Grace that lovingly envelops us. For this, we need to be ever grateful and truly thankful to Him.
Make note of the clear blue skies as they form a comforting canopy above us, where a happy variety of our feathered friends fly and swoop down to entertain us.
The essential mantra: Stop and smell the roses!
So, as we go along in life, do not be in haste, but savour every moment. Cherish loved ones; do not forget the extended family members, and, maybe, other relatives whom we have never met.
Organise video calls and talks. Media technology has progressed immensely. Such types of communication can raise one’s spirit and boost morales. Learn how to become a techie savvy.
Nature, positively plays a precious part in helping us to de-stress. It calms us and refreshes our hearts, bodies, mind and soul.
Therefore, spend time outdoors, and breathe. Take in energy when inhaling; then exhale the dirty, grey stress.
Notice the trees, both deciduous and coniferous, how they majestically paint the horizon with their cheery hues of greens, russets, yellows, browns and beiges. In addition, their varied fragrances, musk and eucalyptus, delightfully tickle our fancy and awaken our spirits.
Observe people, young and old alike, as they continue with their routines. Some walk briskly; a few dressed to the nines and, possibly, the nervous looking ones, have appointments for job interviews. Moreover, youngsters, skateboard or rollerblade, chitchatting and laughing as they go along their way. How cheery!
Yes! These (and much more) are the Blessings galore which He has granted us with.
Hearth and home. Due to the Virus experience, we have, finally, become more closer to our families.
Grandpas and grandmas are now recognised as an integral part of family life. Parents, even, are now well-respected, cherished and dearly loved. Splendid emotions create beautiful memories.
How absolutely delightful! Global love prevails, and respect reigns supreme. Without a doubt, Covid-19, most certainly, has changed the world.
We are more united and compassionate of others. We play safe, by wearing face masks and maintaining the SOPs. Sanitisers and soaps are being regularly used as never before.
So, please stay safe and keep others safe as well. Wear a mask!
God bless us all to be ever-loving, patient and tolerant with each other.
