This is Rita (35). She is from London. She’s on sabbatical leave, looking after her daughter Louella (2).
“My life is a rollercoaster. Very stressful sometimes with good and bad days. Sadly two of my closest friends lost loved ones to coronavirus, which is very upsetting, especially with restrictions at funerals.
My daughter asks all the time ‘why don’t we go out?’ It’s all she wants. She wants to go to the park because she loves playing on the trampoline and swings. But when we get there and we don’t have access, she cries, and we just have to come back. I enjoy spending time with my daughter, and walking a mile to the rhythm and zumba. That keeps me healthy and happy. Friends and family have helped me, but when I go to the shops I have no choice but to take Louella with me which is hard.
We were not prepared for this predicament and I pray for those who have lost loved ones for God’s strength and comfort at this difficult time. I pray for those who are sick for God’s healing and strength. I thank all NHS workers for all their support and hard work that they given to our country. Lastly I thank my family and friends for their tremendous support they have given me and my daughter.”
