Uncertainty is an awful thing to grapple with @CheerBear . No one knows, so all are guessing.
So many out of work and finances cut. Hard to comprehend the pain so many are now facing. We can only be here with and for each other. My heart goes out to so many.
So good the crew know why they are home. It’s a tough call for energetic kids. Yes, leaving the office and family would have been really hard. ❤️❤️
No grocery deliveries happening here atm. There’s an IGA store not far away, so I can get anything I need there.
Spoke with one of my brothers yesterday. He’s doing it hard. His place of worship ( the pub) now closed., He is there Mon to Sat, has Sunday off. He’s a worry.

It might be big and scary for a long time @CheerBear . The world as we knew it, has changed. And in a very short space if time, we have changed with it, or are changing.
The store comes and goes with stock. I don’t eat much, and living alone, don’t need much. I get by on the smell of an oily rag at the best of times. 😄😄
I talk to bro every 2 weeks usually. He’s not an easy person to help @CheerBear , we both have that in common. He’s independent, even a not coping independent. We have a lot in common. He has a heart of pure gold, but it’s well and truly hidden. His very rough exterior is one of the best masks I’ve come across. I really love him.

Yes @CheerBear back to kindness and respect for starters. I too hope some positive will come out of all of this.
I think masks are coming off for many @CheerBear . The together look, is being shattered, reality is hitting hard. Those of us who have struggled with isolation and hardships, ( unnoticed ) will help those who have felt strong. What is strength after all, it’s being there for each other, in our weaknesses.
It brings home the fact we are all human. All a mixture of strength and weakness. We need each other. No man/woman is an island.
I hope you manage ok with sib issues. I do know I couldn’t cope if bro was on my doorstep. Go gently @CheerBear 💚💚💚💚

Love from me to you both too @Maggie @CheerBear xoxo So glad you have each other. I follow along even if I'm not saying much here. And it's nice to be included in the morning coffee run, tho' I usually miss the moment it's there waiting for me when I come on board. Coffee no. 2 now ...
Thinking about you a lot too @Sherry xx
