I woke up to another peaceful morning of stillness. It is amazing to me that despite the Covid-19 statistics and the constant 24 hours updates on the dead tolls from this deadly virus, peace still has a way of showing up every day for me.
I don’t know what it is but it is good to see the world slowing down even if it is by force. I’m one of the many people who still go out to the grocery store and to workout like nothing is going on. I know, I know…. I need to keep my butt in the house especially when I’m not at work. I could feel your energy as I wrote that admission of slight disobedience to the instructions given only by the CDC, WHO and your president. I promise I will do better starting today.
So back to my original thought for writing this blog post. While you are out and about buying the essential items needed for your household like food, paper towels and toilet tissue please remember to be generous. Please leave something on the shelf for your neighbor. It makes no sense to have a whole room full of toilet tissue if you don’t need it all right now. If you’re going buy it all at least drop off some to a senior citizen that can’t get out the house, or a single father or mother who may not have the time to stop by a grocery store after work. We can’t forget to be a blessing to others despite our fears.
If you can’t find any toilet tissue right now make sure to check with your local Family Dollar and Dollar General. These stores will have plenty in stock due to there limit restriction per household. I was able to pick up a few first thing this morning not only for me but also for my co worker’s family.
If you are blessed to still have a job, a roof over your head and food in the fridge be thankful but don’t be greedy.
Stay safe, wash your hands, cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze and don’t touch your face.
With lots of love and a big hug,
