These past few months have been shocking, I'm sure not just for us, but for many people world wide. Covid19 has wreaked havoc on our lives in ways that we never expected.
It isn't that we have been sick, but how our lives have been changed.
We had to cancel going to our 31st wedding destination due to being exposed to Covid. We had to cancel taking my mom's ashes to be buried in CA due to Covid and fires, and lockdowns.
So I actually had to mail my mom to CA. When all this is over, I will go and visit where she, my dad and my sister are buried, along with other loved ones in the same cemetery.
I do know this! God is in control of all things and this was no surprise to Him! I'm getting used to bringing masks everywhere with me, but I cannot stay long in a store as I start to feel dizzy wearing the mask. People say it isn't a reality, but for me it is. I've tried different ones and I still have the same feeling.
I also have not purchased a new pair of pants, other than stretcy leggings (which I won't wear in public) because who buys pants you cannot try on?
The stores all have their dressing rooms closed!
The good news! My friend gave me some pants several months ago and I forgot about them. The pair I tried on fit great! SO YAY!
So, I'm sitting here at my computer typing. I talked to my daughter who lives in Reno yesterday over text. We were reminiscing about boating, and skiing. She was also VERY excited about finding a store that has Russian food! It brought back memories for her and I was so happy to hear that! :)
My brain is so full of things to write.... but it is hard to sit down and focus, as life is sooooo busy right now.
Erika took a new photo of me and I actually like it. :)
So, I'll post it. :)

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)
