“Mommy, why do you lock me here all day?” This was the funny comment of my feeling-adult 4-year-old last week. So ako si Mother Gothel and siya si Rapunzel stuck in a tower? 🤪
But while I laughed about it, hearing this from my daughter surely breaks my heart. 💔 Though she understands that we’re staying at home to be safe, there’s a part of her human heart that yearns to run outside without a care. And I can totally relate. ☺️ Though I’ve tried to keep up with the changes of the new normal, a part of my heart still bleeds for not being able to do the things we used to do.
That’s why it’s painful for me to see others act carelessly as if the pandemic is over. It isn’t, and it won’t end anytime soon if we prioritize our own selfish concerns over the safety of everyone.
For now, I’ll endure keeping my child inside our tower. I’d rather appear to be Mother Gothel to her Rapunzel and hope that our sacrifices to stay at home for most of the time won’t go to waste.
