This Shit Just Got Real
I am doing okay in lockdown, as it’s so inappropriately called. I own my home, own over 1,000 books, can pay my bills for months, and have an acre of land around my home where I grow vegetables. My cabinets are stocked. I bought 3 cases of TP right before this pandemic hit. I own guns and ammo should the world go nuts and chaos ensues. I doubt seriously that will happen, though. I was a Campfire Girl...Always be prepared! Honestly, I once started a campfire in the pouring rain. I got two MFing badges for that feat. I’m a country girl.
BUT, for most of my life, I lived paycheck to paycheck like many of you do. I feel for those who are out of work and broke because I’ve been there. I feel your fear, uncertainty and confusion. I sincerely pray for this virus to die out soon. I pray for God’s mercy for humankind. I pray for you to not fear and to stay well. I’ve never seen anything like this in my lifetime. It’s a time of reflection on the fragility of life and trust in God. Nature prevails. The seasons still change, the trees are covered in blooms and new leaves.
Know this: life goes on and this, too, shall pass. Love, peace, calm and hugs, xo, ~Marion
Hmmmm, I’m not so sure about this, but I’m staying home anyway.
My favorite 30 year old cookbook that tells you how to cook anything & everything from scratch.

Truth. And the truck drivers & grocery store employees who work tirelessly.
