My heart and prayers go out to parents and their children during this very difficult time. The worries and stresses must be overwhelming most of the time - something I can only imagine! 

Raising children is surely hard enough during good times, but even more so now during these days with its fear of loss of income, fear of loss of health insurance, fear of getting sick, fear of falling behind in school, fear of what's next and the constant anxiety that comes from a lack of normal life rhythms.  

I cannot imagine the stress that parents feel with the 24-hour-a-day duty of trying to entertain, teach, bathe, protect, clothe and feed their children, while often trying to work outside the home and take care of themselves as well.  The extra burden of knowing that it may get worse before it gets better has to be maddening at times.  

May God bless you, protect you and give you patience! May God keep your children safe and secure! May God give you wisdom, endurance and freedom from fear as you "handle" the important work to which you have been called!
