I got my COVID19 test results back on Tuesday and all is well as my results were negative for the virus. I am glad to be free of the virus although I do have the COVID19 antibodies. Getting the test was a good thing to do to be sure. COVID19 is nothing to mess with and it is still a part of our reality.
I am happy to wear a mask. Not happy that my glasses fog up on the exhale. Keeping myself and those I love and my friends and neighbors safe is important enough to mask up.
My faith says “fear not” but when it comes to things that can harm you or threaten you then you must be smart, vigilant, and careful. Fear is healthy and can protect you from harm. Fear of the Coronavirus makes sense and can save your life. Fear the virus because there is not a cure or vaccine for it yet. Take care of yourself.
Declared in 2016, the first week in September in the United States is National Blood Donation Week. September is also National Preparedness month, a month to promote family and community disaster planning now and throughout the year.
Blood donors can help in the fight of COVID-19. Convalescent plasma that comes from those who have the COVID antibodies can help save the lives of people infected with the virus.
If you can donate blood or encourage others to do the same. It’s an easy way to help make your community and the world a better place to live.
Somehow milk is comforting and delicious in the heat of this Covid Summer.
Restrictions and safety measures are not tyrannical, it’s doing what’s best for the community. Keeping a virus from spreading benefits everyone in the long term. Those who are complaining need to chill out and think about their friends and neighbors. Elected officials are charged with keeping the public safe and to make difficult decisions even when it might cause an inconvenience to some.
The global crisis we face is one based upon science, technology, medicine and yep a little bit of faith. Investing in all of those things is what is going to bring about a treatment for the Coronavirus. For those who are wondering when this will be over, I don’t know No one knows. We have to ride this thing out for as long as it takes. Worrying about the economy is worrying about the wrong thing. Everyone is going to take a hit of some sort. Life will be unpleasant at times. People will die, people will survive. The chase for instant gratification is a fool’s errand. It’s going to be a rough ride.
During the virus crisis it’s important to support local businesses. Today I ordered Chinese food (my favorite sesame chicken) for lunch from Hunan Wok through Uber Eats. Local places need the support in a big way now.
So many establishments are having to modify the way they operate and serve customers that it’s having a impact on their bottom line. Support local and you can’t go wrong.
