Hope And Gratitude In A Time Of Fear
In the midst of terribly hard and scary circumstances, I found myself having to reach to hope and gratitude over fear – for the sake of my children and truthfully, my own.
GRATITUDE OVER FEAR
See below for the FREE printable coloring card to THANK OUR HEROES
Helping Ourselves And Our Children
Sometimes life throws you a curve. Sometimes it seems everything around you points to darkness. And fear wants to set in – and take over!
Last week, it was like that for us. Everywhere I turn the news was terrible! Naturally, overhearing things, my children are scared. I am scared too but of course, I don’t want my children to know. Of course, we are all human and we have very valid reasons to be concerned. But I am not only afraid. I am sad too. I am sad for all the families that have lost loved ones. Not only have they lost their loved ones – they have lost their loved ones in an incredibly cruel circumstance. They didn’t get to be by their side. They didn’t get to say goodbye and they don’t even get to be at their funeral. It’s not fair!
It isn’t fair! But the cruel microscopic enemy we are facing, does not care.

Realizing that fear and sadness were trying to take over my home, I decided we had to focus on the good, the hopeful, the courageous side of the these circumstances.
The most courageous attitude has been shown by everyday heroes – brave people around us. The courage shown by men and women, moms and dads working in all types of essential services – especially the heroes serving in hospitals everywhere.
THANKING OUR HEROES
I thought of having the kids color a thank you note to them. I started looking for a quick printable to have the kids color and send to them (via social media) but couldn’t really find anything! So we decided to make it for everyone.

FLOOD SOCIAL MEDIA WITH GRATITUDE
If you look at social media, bad news cover the feeds. So why not encourage the brave men and women who are serving in the frontlines by flooding their feeds with gratitude?
Please use these printables and send them via social media (so as not to do printed matter in case of contamination) – and flood doctors, nurses, police, and all essential workers with thank you notes 🙂
You can find the FREE printable card in our shop. We also want to help FOSTER KIDS who have been impacted by the crisis, so we have other designs as a way to raise funds for them. Or you can donate directly to a charity that supports foster children.
