I don’t remember what night it was
but we all went to sleep in one world and woke up in another.
- Disney ran out of magic
- Paris was no longer romantic
- New York was silent
- The China wall was no longer a fortress
- Mecca was empty
- Hugs and Kisses became a silent weapon
- Visiting friends and family became dangerous and not allowed.
- People were admitted to the hospital with no support
- Families were allowing someone to tell them their family had to die alone.
- People were depending on a cloth, mask to save them from an invisible enemy.
Then all of a sudden small simple acts of kindness started happening.
People found ways to still connect and communicate within the in the “rules”.
Love has been spread and kindness stepped up.
We all suddenly realize that beauty, sports, celebrities aren’t that big of a deal.
Oxygen can’t be forced on someone who can’t receive it no matter how fancy the medical equipment is.
I stood on the porch one evening and I listened in silence as the birds whispered, the trees rustled, and I could hear the cows talking one farm over. No cars, no tractors just the animals talking to the wind.
In the people world, things seem to be in a mess.
The world never slowed down. The trees bloomed, the flowers were opening and the clouds were floating against a magnificent blue sky.
Humans were locked inside their homes of all sizes.
but the world…
…. no one told it to stop turning.
The earth turned, the fish swam, the water ran, the birds sang, the flowers bloomed, the trees danced in the wind.
The earth was completely ok without humans.
However, the humans got sick, depressed and sad without the sunshine, the breeze blowing and the grass tickling their toes.
We are a guest to the earth and it has the best healing properties that our bodies can understand.
Life is simple.
We make it hard.
We need less than we think we do.
Being who we are is enough with nothing else added.
In less than 8 weeks we learned how simple the world really is.
Happy Mothers Day

My name is Angela Brooks I’m from Kentucky, a mama who built a big business part-time on my lunch break blogging, using social media power hours.
After a rewarding 30+ year career in healthcare as a nurse, it was time to transition my lifestyle to one I had more control of. Burnout is very real. Decades of budget cuts, staff reductions and stagnant wages have resulted in a profession that is grossly overworked and under-compensated. I created a lifestyle that allows me FREEDOM that I had not known before with one hour a day.
