Yesterday I watched from my window as my neighbor hosted a BBQ. I was both angry and annoyed, and not because I wasn't invited lol, but by the sheer disregard to a.) what is going on in our world and b.) the disregard for human life. There were about 40 people there; all ages and a number of children playing and I didn't see anyone practicing social distancing. Okay, I'm done with my rant.
This led me to ask the question, is the "ask" to stay home really that tremendous?
I mean, we are blessed to get to self-quarantine in the comfort of our own homes. We are able to pay brave people to deliver groceries and packages to us. We still have access to cable, streaming, wi-fi and our normal comforts and yet, some people can't be bothered with staying inside to help slow the spread of this virus.
A further confirmation to my question came this morning in my daily Bible scriptures.
John 3:16; For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son.
We've only been asked to #stayhome. . . let that sit with you.
I'm at day 17 and I'm not experiencing cabin fever; of course I miss jumping in my car and going places, date nights, even driving to the office, but when we get through this, I'll appreciate those things that I've taken for granite.
This weekend, I've started a puzzle of Las Vegas that I gave up on three years ago, reading a new book called The Proposal, along with a few others and loving my Peloton workouts.
Until next time friends,
