We are exiled to save the realm!
We are all in this together. This is the era of social distancing. Shelter in place to protect others. Physical separation to keep from overwhelming our healthcare workers!
I’m grateful for our health, for the well-being of our family and friends, and for our recent travels. In the past 6 months, we have been in northern Italy where these pictures were taken, Connecticut, Utah, and Florida. Hot spots for this virus!
We are in the midst of a long quarantine for the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. It is May and many are growing weary and restless with our necessary social distancing. No work for most businesses, only essential ones like grocery, pharmacy and Ace Hardware. Little to no travel, restaurants are take-out only, and we are wearing masks and rubber gloves when we go out. Stock market is down. Stimulus money distributed. Because of the many unknowns and unpreparedness, it is a healthcare disaster. And now, a political football. When do we open up again?
So how are we dealing with it? We're changing, whether intended or not.
bitchy, irritable, angry, doubtful, desperate, sad, overwhelmed or
struggling to remain positive, grateful, accepting, determined, and sorrowful.
Or all of the above. All at once, sometimes.
Note to self on becoming: Who do I want to be? Positive but smart. Listen to science and history but think for myself. Know that the government sometimes lies or hides the truth. Be compassionate and grateful. Most of all, we will be changed to save the Realm!
