Optimism during COVID 19

Real Estate Agent with Samsel & Associates 0790808

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.

I agree about the rain for sure.  You can't pray for something without believing in it.  Stay healthy and safe my friends!

Wayne & Jean, hope you and your family is safe and healthy.   You are seeing more cases in your area, so thoughts are with you.  I miss my garden, I would be planting peas right now too.

Wayne and Jean Marie Zuhl - thoughts of you came to mind when I heard it was about to peak in NJ. It's doing the same here in North Dallas. These are eerie times. For at least today, let's stay focused on that beautiful child under the umbrella! Children everywhere deserve good health, happy parents, a beautiful childhood, great education, and to live in less fear and more hope. May you have peace and hope.
