The GREATEST Thing You Can Say to Another Human Being.

You are not alone.

You are not alone.

You are not alone.

Right now, more than ever, people need to hear those words. They need them repeated over and over again.

You are not the only Mom who has lost it on her kids 457 times this week.

You are not the only one who is tired.

You are not the only one struggling to find motivation.

You are not the only one worried about how you will pay next month's mortgage.

You are not the only one afraid that your elderly grandparents will get sick.

You are not the only one who is sad that your kids can't see their friends.

You are not the only one who strongly dislikes homeschooling your kids.

You are not the only one sick of doing dishes and cooking and cleaning.

You are not the only one who ate cookies for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

You are not the only one who can not find patience.

You are not the only one who is going to bed late and not waking up early.

You are not the only one who misses people and hugs and crammed concerts and traffic and work and conferences and Saturday sports with your kids.

You are not the only one riding the emotional roller coaster right now.

I am sitting with you too. Walking slowly forward. Trying to make sense of it all. Trying to find some routine. Trying to find hope and joy everyday so that I don't lose myself to the dark world. Trying to cling to God every second of every hour.

It is HARD right now. There is no question about that. I find some of my hardest days are when I let myself "see" too much of how others are doing this quarantine life. I see a snippet of their day and soon feel like I am alone in all of these feelings I have. The comparison trap is REAL and it will snatch you up if you let it. DO NOT GO DOWN IT...IT'S A BLACK HOLE.

BUT then I remind myself this, over and over again...I AM NOT ALONE and it is why I will remind you of this today.

Your feelings are shared by many, me included.

You aren't behind. You aren't the only one who hasn't gotten this figured out yet.

The strongest people I know are the ones who honestly share their hearts and feelings. The ones who admit a struggle. The ones who walk forward even when the day feels so heavy.

When we so bravely and courageously share that, we give permission to someone else to share theirs.

A shared problem is a problem halved.

A heavy load of feelings and emotions is lightened when shared. We have the opportunity right now to do this season of life,together.

We are all walking it. We are all on the same roller coaster, just in different seats. One day you are at the top and waiting for the ride to drop and other days you feel like you are on the easy stretch, the less scary part of the ride.

I hate roller coasters...like HATE them. BUT, the few times I have been on them, I had a friend with me. They held my hand and said "You aren't on this alone and I got you."

God has us. He is riding it with us, whispering those words over and over again. And we can share those words with someone else today. We can help them carry their struggle by sharing ours too.

You aren't alone, friend. We are in this, together.
