I always try to pass along a positive message and this one is a little spiritual. This is a very difficult time for everyone. We’re ALL dealing with tons of emotions with our jobs, relationships, finances, health, family, etc. Just try your best to focus on the positive and remember that God has got you through everything in life. You can’t name one thing God hasn’t got you through because if He hasn’t, you wouldn’t be here right now. Right now, He is pulling us through this. I know we’re not supposed to discuss religion but I’m too old to care at this point. If you don’t believe in God, I respect that (it’s your right) but at least one thing you can do is focus on gratitude. There are many things we can be grateful for such as the fact that you’re breathing, you have a roof over your head, and you probably have a pantry full of pasta.

Another reminder is try not to take your frustrations out on the ones closest to us. Again, we are all irritable right now but the worst thing you can do is take it out on the ones we love. We will get through this. You just have to have a little faith and a little patience…now more than ever. I hope you continue to be blessed in your life and keep your head up. Better times are ahead!
