How are you?

I want to ask you a question, how are you?

It’s a question that is not always easily answered. Sometimes we don’t stop long enough to ask and ponder that question. Perhaps you need to ask yourself today – how am I?

For some, it’s been unimaginably tragic.  On Facebook, I read the news of two siblings who died of Covid-19 one day after each other. I could not compute the fact they were dead. My heart went out to the family.  

Shortly afterwards, one of my brothers lost a work colleague he had worked closely with for ten years. Lives cut short. The inability to say goodbye, and give their loved ones the funeral they want indescribably compounds that pain.

Some of you have suffered financial and job losses or, even the challenges that everyday life can bring. You are reeling from abrupt changes to your circumstances while grappling with our new social norms. Those situations too are painful.

Others of you are homeschooling your children, working, deadlines and, your other responsibilities. I’ve heard of people working harder at home than they did in the office.

I want you to know you’ve been on my mind, and I’ve prayed for you. We will be putting resources together to meet the challenges of health and wellbeing and, unemployment in the weeks ahead.

So how are you? How are you doing? How are you coping with uncertainty, and perhaps even anxiety? The deviation of plans? Relational contact? If you need help – don’t be afraid to ask for it because one thing is for sure, we all need support at one point or another, even if some of us don’t like to admit it.

For those of you who are doing well – great, perhaps you can reach out to someone in your circle and take the time to ask, how are you?
