This last year has been a challenging time for all of us. As restrictions loosen across the country and things begin to return to a kind of normal, it's worth taking a moment to reflect on everything we have learned during this time — and the practices we wish to take with us into the future. Some people have learned how to step back and slow down, spending more time at home with their families; others have realized exactly how important their connections with the outside world are, and are now preparing to dive back into public life with a renewed love and respect for their communities. Many, sadly, have experienced financial hardship or loss. And many, thankfully, have devoted themselves wholeheartedly to offering aid and comfort to those in need.
Though the stories and experiences are different, there are two themes that are universal: gratitude and the need to serve. Most have shared the sense of having increased appreciation for the little things. A call from a friend means so much. The birds at the feeder and the flowers and trees in bloom bring a simple joy that had been missing. Messages drawn with sidewalk chalk and bears in windows are bringing smiles, and videos of relatives meeting again for the first time in months are warming hearts. There are families taking walks and just enjoying being together. The world feels different when the little things are the big things.
