As the coming days proof to be challenging for us all, lets remember we are all in this together. Not just as a group or community but as humankind.
These gorgeous flowers were taken last spring just before a stretch of rain that wiped them out for the year. They may have only bloomed just a week but its beauty can still be felt.
“Life has a tendency to provide a person with what they need in order to grow.”
This may not be the spring welcoming we all expected but it certainly has put a shift into priorities. Running to the store for this project or that has come to a screeching halt. Prepping the grill for your annual cookout has been put on hold. Celebrating birthdays and weekends with friends and family has taken a backseat. What we do have is community.
We have the incredible ability to come together in a unique way. With the resources we have these days we are all able to come together in this uncharted territory and extend a helping hand to others. Teachers offering to help in anyway they can while parents become homeschooling teachers, neighbors running errands for the elderly in order to keep them safe and healthy, churches spreading love via online services and many more. We are all getting through this time .... together.
“Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much” – Helen Keller”
We have all heard the phrase in world where you can be anything, be kind. Share you gifts with those around you. Are you a baker? Share your treats with someone who needs a pick me up. Are you a crafter? Leave a sweet handmade gift on the porch of a neighbor. How can you share your gifts today?
