The response from a little Facebook post of mine made me think that the rest of my readers (if you’re still there after my long absences!) might like to read it.
“Something amazing happened today. Spouse and I are self-isolated because of our age and some underlying conditions.
We live in the middle of nowhere.
The grocery store is 30 miles away and does not deliver out here. No one does.
Except for the hundreds of people who have set up Facebook pages to help out. To get food to those who can’t go shopping. To get medicines from the drug stores. To do whatever needs to be done to keep people safe and fed in their own homes.
I am beyond humbled that so many people responded when I said I couldn’t go to the store. SO MANY PEOPLE that were willing to help.
I found people who will keep our dogs if we get sick. People who will shop for me. People who will do whatever.
We are a village. We are the world.
We will get through this in better shape than when we started out.
I believe that today. Last night I was frightened. Today I have hope. Lots of hope.
To all who responded to my request, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
May you all be safe and well. Take the precautions. Take the threat seriously. Know that everyone has a village and, if you can, be that village.
