…than I ever have

My thought for tonight is simply this:
I wonder if our loss of freedom to move about in humanity has made us more human.
In the past 6 weeks,
I have cherished memories more than I ever have.
I have pushed aside the past more than I ever have
I have mourned more people at once than I ever have.
I have had to be more creative to show my care than I ever have.
I have had to give and serve more than I ever have.
I have I looked for more moments to laugh than I ever have
I have realized it is okay to cry more than I ever have.
I have experienced the need for music more than I ever have.
I have searched for pockets of silence more than I ever have
I have worked harder than I ever have.
I have been more purposeful in play than I ever have.
I have fought to hold on to dreams more than I ever have
I have fought off nightmares more than I ever have.
I have been mindful to conserve more than I ever have
I have mindlessly indulged more than I ever have
I have been more thankful of home than I ever have
I have longed for outdoors more than I ever have.
I have been more grateful for health more than I ever have
I have been more anxious about health than I ever have
I rejoice more for the resilience of my children than I ever have
I sorrow realizing they don’t need me as much than I ever have
I take notice of the brilliance of colors more than I ever have
I take notice of the presence of darkness more than I ever have
I steer from the residuals of human touch more than I ever have
I long for the residuals of human touch more than I ever have.
I see crises makes lonely more than I ever have
I see crises makes us one more than I ever have.
I feel more human now than I ever have.
I feel He is God more now than I ever have
