Words of Encouragement

Field Trip Mom Log 


This past year has been extremely strange, stressful, memorable and life altering. As you know, the pandemic shelter in place began in mid- March and things have not been the same. It has been chaotic between the store shortages, long lines to get into grocery stores and closures of most of your favorite stores and eateries. Trying to keep life as normal as possible, we visited the pick-your-own blueberry farm in late May. It was an outdoor event that was full of families trying to get out to decompress with their loved ones. It would be another two months before we could feel safe enough to go to the raspberry farm to pick fruit. These two outings made us feel a little bit better about the future. In a normal year, we average about 3 field trips per month, frequenting factory tours, museums, gardens, amusement parks and other social gatherings not to forget high school and club sporting events.  It has been a little disappointing not being able to freely field trip or travel. There are have been bad days and good days during this year. Some days I need a reminder that soon all will go back to normal and "This too shall pass."

I would like to share my words of encouragement that I write to myself when I need a little pick me up. 
  • This too shall pass!
  • Look to the future not the past.
  • Things don't stay the same. Change will come soon. 
  • It does not rain forever. The sun will be here soon. 
  • Happiness is a choice. 
  • Do not give up because success is just around the corner. 
  • Will it matter in 5 years?
  • Love can move mountains. 

Prayers that help me to over come difficult moments:


Please guide my feet in the right direction. 
Please direct my daily actions. 
Please send me peace and strength.
Please shield me and protect from all that may harm me.


I wish you good health, wealth and happiness now and forever.
