The world is living in scary times for so many reasons. How do we lift each other up? I’m talking about us in the blogosphere and in our personal lives. What inspires you to keep going? I need your words of wisdom right now.
The past few days, I’m feeling so alone and isolated. I’m feeling trapped inside and have nowhere to go. What’s worse, I can usually pick myself up and keep walking forward and find the joy. Both Chris and I are down and feeling depressed, and that is so very unusual for us.
I know I’m not the only person feeling the isolation of Covid. I’m not the only one with a chronic illness or older age that the virus likes to attack. Chris had polio as a kid and her lungs were damaged and my lungs are my weakest point. So we feel as if we are an island of just two people, 2 pugs and a cat.
The statistics for Corona keep going up. We had 75 new cases in Clackamas County (where I live) since yesterday and 400 in the state of Oregon.
I feel like I’ve lost so much this year, and believe me I know I’m not the only one. In Oregon the only person I have contact with is Chris. We talk to her daughter and have a few friends that are scattered. But since I’ve been sick for so long, friends and communication with other people are totally non-existent. That is why my blog is so very important to me.
In the Helen Reddy song below, it’s all about Mama being the strong person who takes care of the kids. But the song is really about “Who’s Mama’s Mama when she is scared of the rain.” Chris and I tell each other to tie another knot in the rope and hold on.
I’ve put together a list of challenges and their hosts. So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog. Feel free to contact me anytime. I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.
