I Know Some of You Are Having A Rough Time

To many the thought of being trapped with your family for days on end is a nightmare. Not to mention having an invisible monster lurking outside waiting to cause a painful death.

It is a time for many of us to look deep inside ourselves and figure out our true purpose. It is time to determine what legacy will we leave on this planet where we have no control.

Because we are not the ones with the final say, we may need to lighten up. My quarantine time has been filled with lots of humor. This reporter was about to do his story when a herd of bison came toward him.

The story is probably trending now. The next was the little old lady in Chi-town. She was angry at some woman from the grocery store and wanted to teach that woman a Chicago lesson.

I also enjoy the banter between Andrew Cuomo and his brother, Chris. While it is fun, I also find comfort in Andrew’s daily press conferences. It is good to hear an empathetic leader.

There have been online dance parties with dj’s like D-Nice who has had audiences as large at 150K on Instagram. Celebrity concerts from their living rooms and Wonderful bible studies.

But the most precious moments have come from ordinary citizens who are battling this war from one of the fronts.

My best giggle from today was when someone complained how long March seemed. Folks said that about January is what I said to my sister. She said March said “Hold my beer.”

Fighting an invisible foe which half the country does believe exist is difficult but we are united. We are working together and there is hope in that.

After the struggles 2019, which were real and painful, many couldn’t wait to put that year behind them. 2020 has kicked open the crapper and spread its contents like it was paint on the walls.

So I do believe the moral to the story is to enjoy what we got while we got it because only God knows what lies ahead of us. But we can face any challenge together.

Peace and Hair grease

What Are You Consuming?

The pandemic is giving us more time with our inner thoughts. What is filling your head? What about your soul?

As you consume all of the things around you, how are they leaving you? Are you full? Are you empty?

The Bible tells us what we consume is what will come out of us in times of trouble.

Today in the pandemic

I focused on feet. It was a trying day with me spending all day on the phone.

Giving my feet some love was the thing to do. I like this foot mask because the shea and oats deal with your dry skin. It also leaves them soft.

It is a good moment to be still, take weight off your feet and chill.

What Are You Doing During the Pandemic?

So on this day of the pandemic I tried this Aveeno mask. I like this one. It tingles (I guess the tingling makes me think it is working) it was easy to get on.

You can feel it drying, like one of those mud mask. By the time this pandemic is over I will have amazing skin or need a dermatologist. I figured I would spend the extra time doing things I normally dont have time for. (I mean when God gives you time, use it wisely)

The one thing I hate about these type of mask is that they are messy to take off. I am gonna mess up some towels.
