My Easter Thoughts & Prayer For You

Not Sponsored: With everything going on in the world, it's hard for me to say HAPPY Easter this year. The coronavirus has been devastating to so many worldwide. People have lost their jobs. They have lost friends, co-workers and family members. People are anxious, depressed and stressed. Like you, I hear these stories on tv, from conversations with others and from friends & family. It's heartbreaking to see and hear. This entire experience has been very humbling and has shifted my entire focus this year. A couple of months ago I put up indoor Easter decorations, but as this crisis unfolded I decided to take them all down. When you see videos of people dying in the street, piles of body bags, rows of coffins and people gasping for air in hospitals ... Easter decor truly becomes insignificant. I will decorate the inside of my home again, but for me this was not the year to do so. If I had children, I would've kept everything up because for them its entirely different. They don't fully understand the complexity of this situation and need something happy to look at right now. My focus during this crisis has shifted to helping personal friends, elderly neighbors, patronizing local businesses and giving to local government. What you do ... whether it's small or large ... does make a difference and has a huge impact. Don't think it doesn't. It's important to help others anyway you can. It doesn't even have to be monetarily. Your service and/or kind words are worth the weight of gold. What the world is dealing with is a relentless, unmerciful and deadly virus. I live in one of the hot spot cities (New Orleans), so I've been taking all precautions for myself and mother (who is a senior citizen). We already live a quiet life, but it will be even more solemn this year. We're thankful for the roof over our heads, food on our table, our health and the ability to help others. We all have a long road ahead in fighting this virus. It has to be a team effort to eradicate it. It can be done, but it can't be done alone. I pray for you. I pray for your family. Take care of yourselves. May God Bless You. May God Protect You. May God See Us Through This.
