Wow! What a day. Monday, March 16, 2020 was intense. Tax deadline, concerned clients, family and friends, relocating my staff and all of their equipment to work from home, setting up remote phone and conferencing systems and back up and running by noon. Thanks to my awesome staff for gitin’ er done and to my amazing clients for your support. Not gonna lie, I binged on my quarantine snacks last night and I’m a little bloated this morning.
Looks like today will be chilly and rainy. No worries. We’re all hunkered down anyway. Here’s my plan for the next two weeks:
Count my blessings! I don’t have a clue whether we are overreacting or underreacting. Time will tell. I’m so thankful to live in a community where I trust the motives of my leaders. Thank you, guys, for your honesty and dedication to our community. I am praying wisdom for you all and trusting God to work through you.
Consider my neighbor. As of last night, there were no confirmed cases in Wise County. Let’s do what we can to keep it that way. I have family and friends who are immunocompromised, or work in health care or first response. If you don’t, pretend you do.
Use my gifts. I am diligently working with clients to help them navigate this rapidly transforming economy. The potential impact on our businesses and livelihood is daunting. But necessity is the mother of invention! I see a plethora of excellent ideas and new opportunities every day. My favorite from yesterday is A Touch of Rust Online Market which will replace the market scheduled for March.
Pray. Worrying is terrible for your immune system. There is nothing more destressing than chatting it up with the Creator of the universe. This ain’t His first rodeo. Share your concerns with Him, leave them with Him, then get up and git er done!
