This I’ve Learned

the world is at war yet not with each other, but fighting the same invisible enemy.  That seems to amplify the meaning ‘we’re all in this together’.
My first thought was to suggest we stay positive in this difficult situation. But, on second thought, I don’t think positive is the right word ‘certainly not the virus test’.
Each day brings a new day with sunshine. Someday soon the sun will have a happy face.

It’s okay to smile at people you don’t know.
When in doubt, think again.
Don’t let yesterday’s mistakes be today’s worry.

your address book contains mostly names ending in MD.
your kids begin to look middle-aged.
you know all the answers, but nobody asks the questions.

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE – Corona Fallout
The coronavirus has achieved what no wife has ever been able to do. It has canceled sports, closed all bars and kept all guys at home.
A mother was seen scraping off the ‘proud student’ bumper sticker.
There’s no place for people to go who once ended phone calls with “Okay, I’ve got to run now.”
The new dress code for work is PJs.
People now know what introverts do.  
Wives are waving the four-year-old ‘honey-do-list’.

Don’t let splintered plywood spoil your project. Put a strip of masking tape over the starting point.  It won’t split when you start to saw.
When using a screwdriver rub the blade with chalk to keep it from slipping.  

Speeding will get you only one place ahead of time-the cemetery.
When thing go wrong, only two types of people smile; idiots and repairmen.

    Ah yes, when the kids begin to look middle aged. Actually they are middle aged. How did that happen ! They are always our kids–but I certainly respect and appreciate the adults they are. Yes – we must look for the sunshine in every day. Todays blog certainly has good food for thought Theresa.
    Stay well.

    Love it, Theresa! Great humor during this “stay-at-home” time.
    Thanks for the smile!

    I too, loved the middle age kids and the mom scraping off the ‘proud parent’ sticker off the bumper.

    Good tips, also!

    Thank you for the smiles, especially now!

    I usually try to smile at people I don’t know, but now I realize they can’t see it through the mask I’m wearing 🙂
