By nature I’m an optimist and I believe we’ll get through the current crisis. However that belief gets shattered on a daily basis and I start to panic. This usually happens when I’m tired or accidentally hear a news report. I’ve learned that if I don’t listen to any news, not even NPR, I don’t panic as much. I trust that my husband will tell me anything I must know. So, until April 20, or later, I’m going to stay in my safe places, one of which is my office/workshop/playroom, which doubles as our dog Cassie’s bedroom.
I’ve been sewing ornaments, including some special order dog(and cat) ornaments, which keeps me distracted, motivated and calm. As I sew, little Goldie sits next to me, providing peace and comfort. I love to remind myself that the dogs have no idea what’s going on with this virus nightmare, and I imagine being in that head space.
I pray that each of you are safe and healthy.
