ONE LEARNING FROM COVID 19 THAT WILL CHANGE THE WAY WE LIVE OUR LIVES FOREVER

COVID 19 is the pandemic that no one was prepared for. It has destroyed lives, families, and cities in the space of 2020. Living In Victoria, Australia we have been the worst affected in the whole country. 2020 was certainly not the year I thought it was going to be.






Knowing all too well what a real Flu looks like, and knowing that the girls would go down hard if they contracted COVID 19, I pulled them out of school before instructions from the government to do so. The conversations around this were questioning, and painful. This is the strongest the girls have been in 5 to 6 years. They had started to build friendships and keep up with full days at school. The decision and conversations were met with tears, but understanding that if they caught it, there was a chance we could not sit beside them when they were admitted into ICU. They would fight this deadly virus alone. The thought of this for even a split second tore my heart and made the choice that much easier. This also included their little sister, as I did not want her unknowingly contracting it and bringing it home.
