Sunday, March 22nd
Overall, Sunday was a pretty good day. The most exciting thing was after dinner. We snuggled down and watched Brave with our kiddo and ate some kettle corn. I stayed off social media almost all day and we spent time together. I spent a good two to three hours playing little boy games today. I felt very content.
What else happened today?
Along with the quiet that’s settled over our neighborhood, I looked out the window this morning and noticed the leaves are popping! The Lilac has green all over it along with both of the trees in our front yard. It really hasn’t been that warm, but spring is upon us! I can’t wait till I can shed the sweater that I’ve been wearing all this winter. The world is still turning.
I realized today how much worse this could be. I know it’s not good. I know it’s not easy. I’m still struggling myself, but it could be so much worse. What if we had to worry about our brothers and husbands being drafted into war? What if we had war on our own soil and we were having bombs dropped on us? What if this sickness had a 70% kill rate? There are worse things. We can get through this.
I am worried about my friends and family who are out there working on the front lines of this thing. I’m praying for their safety. The most disturbing thing we saw today was this video. It truly clarifies that we are doing the right thing by isolating now, rather than when the authorities tell us we have to. It also worries me that we aren’t being told everything…
In the news today:
- 64 cases in our state today.
- One of the counties next to us has been ordered to “stay at home”. I expect it will be here within the week.
