Hard to believe it’s been a month since we have been under “stay at home” orders here in Texas. I thankfully have been working the entire time, mostly at home. And no cleaning closets or planting flowers for me. The shorter commute seems to have translated into longer work days. Yikes!
But on the bright side, I am eating well, taking frequent walks, spending more time with my family cooking, baking, and doing puzzles. And I am not dealing with the stress of commuting!
I heard this song that I love while I was walking the other day. The lyrics inspired my board this week… Everyone needs help sometimes…even the moon!
These times we are in are different. Unprecedented for my lifetime. I am fortunate to have a job, food on the table, and don’t have to decide which bill to pay. There are millions who aren’t as fortunate. And not everyone will ask for help. Now is the time that we should be reaching out to others: Our elderly neighbors, our friends who live alone, our aging relatives who might be isolated. We all get by with a little help from our friends.
When you wonder what you can do to make a difference, it doesn’t have to be a grand gesture. It may just be offering to shop for someone or giving them something they couldn’t find at the store that you have plenty of and can spare (a few rolls of toilet paper or a can of soup). Or perhaps you can chalk your sidewalk to make your neighbors smile. Or donate to a food pantry. Or make masks for your friends, neighbors, and first responders. Or buy some goodies for the local health care workers. Or support a local restaurant that is struggling.
This world will be a better place if we all just smile 🙂 and pitch in where we can. ❤️
My hope is that if you need help, you are not too embarrassed to ask. And if you can help, do.
