I’m excited to share with you a new series I’m starting called, “Talk Till Dawn”, I want this to be about my everyday life, the things I’m reading, eating, my everyday ups and down, along with photos that I’ve taken over the week.
My life and home is far from perfect even though I always share with you pretty home decor picture. Now from time to time I’ll give you a look at how things can get out of control like everyone else’s life.
I can’t believe another month is over and it’s time to give you an update of what I’ve been doing. Most of you know I’ve been adding a daily diary to the end of my regular posts during the virus. That being said I don’t feel like I have much to add, but I’ll give it a go and see what comes to mind.
One of the hardest things I’ve struggled with over the month is worry. I’ve worried about others in our community having enough food to eat. Most people are proud and won’t let others know if they are in need. I’ve prayed about it, asking God to put someone in my path that may be struggling with food shortage. So far that hasn’t happened but I will keep my heart and eyes open. The community I live in is poor by most standards; many are farmers so they do have the means and access to a food source but I’m not sure about money.
I know many in my neck of the woods are living on unemployment, as the rest of the country is, but many still are trying to navigate the system to receive those funds without any luck. With all that’s happening I wonder how the average person is living; is it off their savings? How much do they have stashed away? How many months would one need to maintain all their bills and needs for a prolonged period of time? I know many or most live paycheck to paycheck.
With living so remote we do take care of our own like the good old days. Our school system doesn’t conduct online classes so the bus drivers are taking homework to and from each house on a weekly basis and also delivering two meals a day to the kids. This just warms my heart and make small town living all the more desirable.
What have you learned thought this all, and what will you be changing in your life and home to prepare for future unwanted circumstances? Until next time take care and thank you for spending the time talking till dawn with me today!
