So it’s Friday and that brings a source of glee that the other days do not. Right now Friday’s and sleep are “where it’s at“. Oh, Friday’s and Sleep and Weekends, can’t forget those.
And the coffee sure is good this morning.
So Day 2 of the Social Media experiment. I didn’t miss it at all and really didn’t even think about it. The only time I thought about it was when I saw the red numbers on my phone building. I have 152 notifications and 3 Instant Messages all unread and unlooked at. No bother. Nothing I’m itching to get back to.
My mind is a little blank right now as I type this. My thoughts are on the next video which I have worked on this week filming some. I don’t want to really tell you what all I’m working on. I’m getting some B Roll shots, which as I was telling someone – the B Roll shots are actually my favorite parts. I guess that makes them A rollers huh?
My mind is also on the COVID-19 which we can’t get away from it seems. It was nice that people were starting to get out and economy back open. We all kinda new it would surge back up again, but being the hopeful spirits we try to have, we DID get our hopes up thinking that we would go back to somewhat of a normal even though inching there. With the numbers surging, it has a lot of us thinking we are all just going to get it and then most of society will have the antibodies and then we can go on. But no, just when your thoughts are turning positive again, a study comes out about how the antibodies only help for a little while. So what? You could get COVID-19 over and over again? That study was from China so not sure I buy in. And what? So all the ones who are anti vaccine will change their mind and get the vaccine and then we will have who knows what in our bodies and then there are those rumors about putting things in our bodies that make you obedient and all that. Whaaaaattttt? Can we just go dig a hole already?
I watched a YouTube sailing couple’s show yesterday. It showed up in my YouTube suggestions. And the lady had just lost her spouse to COVID and was trying to figure out where to go from here. She didn’t want to sail by herself and was not sure she could. But she didn’t want to sail her boat. So she is hoping for a crew to sail with. It’s just so sad. I felt so bad for her.
So I go from thinking the loss of life is a small percentage and we all have a good chance of survival and then you hear of something like that – that just makes it more real. If they could just figure out how to cure/fix it for sure. Once on ventilator they say the survival rate is low.
So these are unfortunately where my thoughts are today. Just discouraged that the COVID-19 will be here forever – or at least longer than we want – we have already surpassed that point. I DO however, KNOW that people are smart and will figure all this out. It’s just hard to know what to believe.
I was thinking yesterday – do I know anyone that has even had this? No I don’t. Just random things like yesterday’s videos here and there where people have talked about it. All these people getting sick and you hear more of the numbers than you do any data from those who are ill. Do you all personally know of anyone that has had it? I suppose soon we will as the numbers grow.
I’m struggling a bit still. And yesterday was VERY Long despite being busy at work. I watched the clock all day. I think about COVID-19 a chunk of the day while I’m working. I try to listen to music and it brings consolation.
I made a note to share this song with you all as this song meant a lot to me. It’s beautiful. It’s a video/song by Bruno Merz. I love the part where it says “Everything will be Alright”. I needed that! I feel sometimes as if God himself picks my music line up. I truly DO believe He has the power to do that.
I enjoy food and it brings consolation. Talking with friends brings joy. Working in my office at home brings complete happiness. 😉
I know that Everything Will Be Alright. I’ve never been one of patience. God is certainly teaching that. We just have to keep finding the positive sides to everything. Find the good parts of the day. And today the joy comes from the fact that it’s Friday and two whole days to bless our homes and work on things we love to work on.
God is in Control. We that love Him and Know Him are in His hands. So go on and enjoy the coffee, your meals today (yum), your music line up, and give each other a cheer and a prayer with your coffee cup held high!
We will get through all of this eventually! Under HIS wing!
Oh and….we have a Dust Plume coming! :-O. But the murder hornets have held off for now!
