Thank you Arianna and Bozema. This conversation really helped me to accept that the downtime I am having with my youngest daughter through this pandemic. She is a boarding student in Australia but has been stuck here in Papua New Guinea since last April 2020 due to border closure. As our youngest of 6 daughters in our beautiful blended family, we continue to use this opportunity to learn about each other in a truly deep way. Coincidently, my husband and I were in fact discussing last night that this being stuck at home together has been a happy coincidence. This podcast was another happy coincidence. Stay blessed always.
