When I heard the news of the “war” on the corona virus, I did what I always do when confronted with seemingly insurmountable troubles: I slept. I slept nearly the entire week-end, sequestered at home with my cat, two dogs, husband, food, heat and Wi-Fi.
This morning, gratefully, I woke up with my “optimism gene” in full gear.
I asked myself, “What are the unforeseen “collateral blessings” of being sequestered during this “war”?
This very minute, I think of three unexpected blessings:
- Time to write
- Time to finish an art quilt project
- Money saved from not having lunch with friends and dinner out with family will be donated to my Food Bank
I feel more grateful by the minute.
During the next couple of sequestered weeks, I plan to add near daily to my list of Collateral Blessings.
I hope you will add some, too.
