Its ok to be emotional!
I have found myself being very emotional at this time during lockdown. There is so much uncertainty and doubt as to what is going to happen. But I want to encourage you that you are NOT ALONE! And that it’s ok to have a cry or eat all the chocolate in the house. Sometimes we need to let the emotions out to help us feel better!

Tears, tears go away don’t come back another day.
As I say it they come out more and I know I have lost the war.
To embrace my tears is to say I am free, to release all that has been bubbling in me.
At last I have come to the end of the cry. But somehow I feel much better inside.
God be with me in my pain, in the drought and in the rain.
Now I have let out all my feelings, grant me your love, your peace, in my being.
