It has been an extra long summer for us all with the hot weather, schools out early and yes this pandemic. We are facing times like we have not seen, at least in my lifetime, and how are we coping? Well, we stay at home and cook more instead of going out to a restaurant. Not so sure I like this, but my cooking skills back to where they once were, or maybe a little better. Don’t really like the clean up part. We wash our hands much much more, which i kind of like the cleanliness part, but the face mask wearing is very unattractive and really sweaty. I have learned to use some essential oils on my mask so i don’t have to smell my own breath all the time. My preference is thieves oil as it also has some added healthy benefits.
The question is when will our kids get to be in school and have some social time with their friends? Its a different answer for all areas of our United States. As for my south Alabama area, we are going 2 days on and the rest virtual. So, we learn to multi task. Ours lives are so different and so are our kids lives! But, we will get through this and will be a better United States for it. My hopes are that we will be cleaner, more thoughtful of our children, and appreciate all the freedoms that most of us have taken for granted! I know that I have. I hope that we appreciate the abundance of food choices we have, the ability to work and work harder to have what we want. The police that keep us safe! The right to bear arms! The freedom of religion and assembly. The right to go to concerts, travel and have parties. The right for our children to go to school and learn in a safe environment.
Almost all area of our lives have been invaded by this virus . I remind myself what Jesus said ” I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
On a happier note, the weather is one thing you can count on to change and I am definately ready for some cooler temperatures in the south. So if you don’t have the green thumb or just want one less thing to worry about, buy you some beautiful silk flowers and make a centerpiece for your table, which is used more these days. Also, think about adding a new wreath to your front door in some silk flowers. No worries if you forget to water them, they don’t need any water. Maybe make up some flowers for a loved one passed on to put on their grave side. So many options that are beautiful and add some beauty and happiness to your life. If you look on our website at wholesalesouth.com you will see some tea roses and some grasses. Put some together and see just how pretty they are.
It was great to blog today! I hope to be back soon! Happy happy day! Stay safe and healthy!
