Dear Brides Affected by COVID-19,
I feel you. Every moment of anxiety, frustration and grief. From the moments of heartbreak to moments of wondering, “whats next?”. The darkness that comes from total loss of control. These moments bind us. No one will ever truly understand what we have endured.
I am astounded by you. Reading about all the couples who have found strength in one another. Brides who have made the best out of a horrible situation. Brides who have proven that love does conquer all. You have pushed me to grow from the darkness. To find the light.
I am encouraged by you. Your compassion to support other brides and cry with us in our darkest moments and celebrate with us in our moments of light. To see so many women come together and put their arms around one another, no questions asked, has been the biggest blessing through this entire journey. I have never once felt alone.
It’s OK to feel all of these things. To feel defeated and to feel supported. The uncertainty of the future can feel immense. But I find comfort in knowing that this community of COVID-19 brides is beautiful, strong and resilient. Fellow COVID-19 brides, you’ve helped me far more then you could ever know. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
