As we shelter in place, engage in social-distancing, and otherwise do what we can to protect ourselves, and those we love from the coronavirus disease, here are some things you might keep in mind.
1. Be kind and thank your grocery clerk
Especially during these challenging times I’m hoping that kindness will prevail. As you are heading out to the grocery store, carefully avoiding too-close contact with other people, and then rush home to wash your hands, always remember that the man or woman at the cash register, who’s there for eight hours or more, is there to serve you. Potentially risking their own lives to be of service. So, be kind to them and thank them because if it wasn’t for them you wouldn’t be able to get your groceries and toilet paper for that matter!
2. Pray and allow for some space
Ever since my family and I have been self-quarantining at home I’ve been using this time to draw closer to God. I make it a habit to mediate and pray more. I’m trying to distance myself from my phone and take a walk with my kids instead, sit on my porch and read a book, and I’ve been actually calling people who are near and dear to my heart instead of texting.
3. Last but not least remember, this too shall pass
After the rain comes the rainbow. I cannot help but think that this is all a learning lesson for us all. A distressing time to prove our loyalty to our heavenly father. So, let’s remain steadfast and positive. Try to make sure that what’s remembered about you is something positive.
Yes, be kind and spread love..❤ and pray.😇

“This too shall pass,” absolutely…Faith and calming things to take up our time is necessary. Lovely post!
This is such a strange time, but I truly believe we will all come out of this with greater compassion, a greater understanding of ourselves and our goals. Hope you and your family stay and healthy x
