Getting Back To Work (Silver Lining 4-30-2020)

April 30, 2020

The joy of work.

Tonight’s “two good things of the day” from son number two included one we used to hear often: “Work”.

It’s amazing how wonderfully happy I am to hear that from one of my children. Really: what more can you want than for your child to find something he enjoys doing–and gets paid to do it?

But for the last four weeks, he, too, was home. He was not happy about it (although he admits to a new appreciation for government programs like unemployment). He missed work.

A silver lining of being out of work? Appreciating getting to go “back to work”!

Silver Linings…

started as my personal response to 2020’s global pandemic of COVID-19.  When I published them locally,  I was surprised by how much people responded to them.


I hope they bring some positivity to you, too, during this unsettling time
