April 1 question - The IWSG’s focus is on our writers. Each month, from all over the globe, we are a united group sharing our insecurities, our troubles, and our pain. So, in this time when our world is in crisis with the covid-19 pandemic, our optional question this month is: how are things in your world?
My world consists of the interior of my home. When the weather cooperates here, in Buffalo, NY, we go for walks around the neighborhood. In the past week, I made a trip to the market, and that is all. I drove very slow to see the sights. LOL...What helps in my daily doldrums is my 18 month old grandson and my daughter who live with us. My heart grows bigger each day seeing that baby. We dance, laugh, giggle, and watch cartoons.
To stay informed, we watch the world news. And sometimes, I come away baffled because I hear differing things. But, last night, it was the first time I couldn't watch it. Hearing the death tolls around the world are heart wrenching. At times, I feel the sensationalizing of this pandemic creates havoc, tension, and hysteria. It might be beneficial to take a break from watching the news once in a while.
The only way I feel I can help, is by adding my daily prayers to those being said around the globe. I feel God is bringing His people to their knees. If you don't have a faith filled belief, then spread your love and light into the world.
At night, as I lay my head down on my pillow, I tend to worry and pray more. My son, which I've mentioned before, is an Emergency Room doctor in PA, who's been working in the covid-19 unit, and he has a 4 month old and a 3 year old at home. Needless to say, this is concerning and I'm scared for him and his family. I haven't seen them in months, and we'd planned on visiting them this past weekend...but the world is sick...At least we have Facetime and pictures...
