Because my previous blog was about our cruise to Panama and since so many of you have been checking in to see how it went, I decided to respond here, and I promise no suggestions on how to get through the Corona crisis. You’re getting enough advice from the rest of the world and it’s on TV like 24/7.
The trip was wonderful and uneventful, just relaxing and fun with great friends. We were, however, mighty grateful to return to home and cats. We missed Anthem and social events, and just when we were getting back in the swing of things, everything has been cancelled! A trip to Costco yesterday was a waste of time because the line to enter the store went around the entire building. It’s a huge building so you can understand why we decided it wasn’t worth it to wait in line and possibly find empty shelves by time we were allowed to enter. Fortunately, we have a nice supply of toilet paper which seems to be the big concern across the nation. Toilet paper? Seriously???? In the good old days growing up on the farm in Minnesota, we had a two-seater outdoor toilet with our choice of Sears, Montgomery Ward, JC Penney or Aldens catalogs to assist our business. Heaven forbid the millenials should run out of toidy paper for their spoiled little bottoms!
If you’ve been watching the news (and who hasn’t), you have probably heard Westchester County NY has quite a problem with cases of COVid-19. We have a son who lives there so needless to say we are very concerned about him and the grandkids. His girlfriend is a doctor so that gives us comfort. We also rejoice in knowing God is in control.
Sending our love to all with prayers for good health and strength to face whatever lies ahead. These are serious times, but we have an awesome God who promises to never leave nor forsake us. Amen!
