Author Laura Kelly Fanucci shares a reflection for us this Monday morning:

When this is over,
May we never again take for granted
A handshake with a stranger
Full shelves at the store
Conversations with neighbors
A crowded theatre
Friday night out
The taste of communion
A routine checkup
The school rush each morning
Coffee with a friend
The stadium roaring
Each deep breath
A boring Tuesday
Life itself

When this ends, may we find that we have become
More like the people we wanted to be
We were called to be
We hoped to be
And may we stay that way –
Better for each other
Because of the worst.

Let’s continue to support one another through all challenges we are facing and determine that they will call forth from us our very best.

Have a great week, everyone!
