This I’ve Learned

how frustrating to be home bound and need to cover my face when I go out for essentials. I hate being restricted. Then I talked to a friend living in an Assisted Living home. She has been confined to one room and eating alone for about five months. The TV shared stories about people who lost financial security, some even their homes. I saw pictures of ventilators and families mourning. The whole world is engulfed in hardship and here I am complaining about the least of all problems.
Whoever thought one could be thankful in such overwhelming times. I am.

Pay off your credit cards every month. 
Do what needs to be done today, you’ll be glad tomorrow.

You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.
Cherish the moment. You will never see it again.

There are less than 3 months until election day when people will decide who will be the next President of the United States. The person elected will be the President of all Americans not just the Democrats or the Republicans. It’s time that we all came together, Democrats and Republicans alike, in a bi-partisan effort for America and showed unity. 
If you support _______, please drive with your headlights ON during the day.
If you support _______, please drive with your headlights OFF at night.  Together we can make this happen.

*Get out blood as soon as possible. Make a paste of cornstarch and cold water. Rub in gently and let set till hard. Vacuum the powder. Repeat if necessary.
*To remove fruit stains, wet with water and rub in salt. Let set, then brush it out and vacuum. Repeat if necessary. 
*Reach for club soda to remove other spots. The carbonation loosens dirt so you can blot it up. It doesn’t leave a sticky residue like soap does.

    Today, I was silently whining to myself about about restrictions. A friend posted a prayer on Face Book thanking God for a roof over their heads, food in the refrigerator and pantry, a warm, comfortable bed and a few other things I take for granted. Suddenly, my whining vanished and I, too thanked God for abundant blessings.
    Drats, I had to delete a whole paragraph, for I actually did an about face ranting about our current situation. Certainly couldn’t cast a dark shadow on Theresa’s uplifting, positive blog. We need her positive mindset! Thank you WISE lady!!!!!!

    Sometimes I find me feeling sorry for myself, then I realize I have all the things Cathy mentioned… a roof over my head, food in the fridge, and a comfy bed to crawl into every night… even a TV to watch while I lay there waiting for sleep to come. And this doesn’t need to be just the Covid thing with me. I felt this way many times before the pandemic hit us. There is always someone out there who is much worse off than I am. I am very grateful for what I do have.

    Not only pay off your credit card every month, but consider what your credit card gives you. If you enjoy travel (post-COVID19) get one that pays miles for every dollar spent. If you prefer cash back, research and apply for that type of account. Bottom line, NEVER PAY INTEREST.
