It is a BEAUTIFUL day today in New Jersey.
I planted some peas in the house a few weeks ago and set them in the ground today. Small seedlings, very frail and barely much at all.
But I surrounded them with plenty of optimistic lattice strips for them to grow on to.
Reminds me of the story of the villagers who prayed for rain. But only 1 person brought his umbrella.
Now that the "peak" of COVID19 seems to be hitting our area, there are very few signs of optismism. Perhaps the number of cases is increasing a little slower. Maybe fewer deaths to report today compared to yesterday. Hardly anything to cheer about, even if it does mean we could possibly, maybe, hopefully be hitting the peak. We're staying home, only going out into the zombie apocalypse for emergencies.
Like our grocery run yesterday.
But, maybe now that we're in week 4 of shelter-in-place, things might start to look up.
So prepare for a great tomorrow, even if things are a little tough today. Prospect, call your contacts, send your postcards. This won't last forever. And believe you me, we're hitting the ground running.
