how often I wonder what some of my friends and family are doing and where they are. Now I know. They are at home. But at the same time, I realize there are still many who are not home because they are risking their lives for us. I’m sure we all feel an abundance of gratitude. Let’s remember them in our prayers and all the people who have and will be affected by this virus. I’m amazed to hear about the many creative things people are doing to cope. It’s hard to believe anything good could come from such a devastating situation. I feel guilty even thinking about it. But I have no doubt, after it’s over, we’ll know the good. Know you’re not alone. We’re all in this together. Now, that’s a good thing.

KEEP A HAPPY FACE                      
Smile, your wrinkles won’t show.
Learn one thing new every day even though you forget five.
Don’t worry about what others think of you.

Submerge a lemon in hot water for 15 minuted to get more juice.
Fresh tomatoes last longer by storing stem-side down.
Soak onion in cold water for about an hour, they’ll taste better in salad.

You know better, but could care less.
Going out is good, but coming home is better.
You use a four-letter word often…WHAT?


If you’re sure you’ll never gamble again, don’t bet on it.
By the time you realize how great it is to be young, you’re old.

    Hi Theresa,
    Yes, we need to be thankful for those that are at their jobs everyday at great risk to themselves. Thankful for the medical professionals, pharmacy people and those keeping the food supply available. I can complain about having to stay home, but such a small price to pay to remain healthy. Stay safe and well my friend.

    Another great blog, Theresa. Gratitude is the name of the game… for those that are out there on the front lines fighting this enemy for us and for those manning (and womaning) the essential places of businesses for us – like grocery stores. Trader Joe’s is the only place I have ventured out to and I’m so happy it’s there. And I’m very grateful that I have a good home to stay put in and be safe to the best of my ability. And I’m grateful for all your tips and saying that keep me smiling.

    Blessings to you,

    I wonder if soaking onions will keep our eyes from watering? Your uplifting message brings sunshine to chase away glooming thoughts.

    I LOVE the toilet paper!
    Because I have had so much time at home, I cleaned out a kitchen cupboard. I found tea that I purchased in San Francisco’s Chinatown eight years ago. It tastes wonderful- and the tea bag states you can make up to 8 cups per spoonful of tea. Who knew!
