A story of love today

There have been a small group of young men holding signs every day at the corner of an intersection in a nearby town.

I have stopped and talked with them and brought water a few times. These could be my sons...

Today, something special happened.

I asked to hold a young man's sign so that he could rest his arms for a bit. I shared that I couldn't stand for very long because of my back, but I wanted to help.

Once I had the sign in my hands, the men surrounded me and prayed for my pain to be eased.

We were all in tears and I will never forget this moment of raw human caring.

I dont interact very well with people and mostly keep to myself.

I'm so grateful to have stopped. These young men are our future and they showed me that hope is here for the next generation.






Singing veggie tales song to my bunny

Opal, my little rabbit is having her daily snacks.

I forgot the actual song, so I sing "collard greens, jelly beans, gotta be veggie tales.."

She is having some spinach and a strawberry. (No jelly beans)

I am drinking peppermint schnapps from the freezer.

Taking a half day off to go comfortably numb and sing toddler songs to a rabbit...


Trying to upload pic.

My little red town yesterday...





Wake me up when September ends

This song, along with the pictures just hit me so hard in the chest. The message made clear without these exact words, but with those emotions that ride deep...

Wake me up when it ends...

Never forget what we lost.

Im so thankful for you all. You help me in so many ways. This ole gal in the woods went out and got herself some cyber stranger besties!

............
Hope is the thing with feathers that perches on the soul...



Masks for trash service

I have been making face masks for my family and neighbors. Today I took 7 to my trash service company. Im in a very rural town. I have never seen absolute glee like these guys had.

They feel like no one remembers them. They're essential and we need them healthy.

Just an idea for those making masks for their community.

Insomnia sucks, so I sewed some masks

Cotton double layered and has a pocket for a filter. Got about 20 finished and a few to add ties to. These are for family, then local hospitals if needed.

I haven't used a sewing machine in so long that it took two hours of exploded bobbins, a broken needle, and some cursing before I figured it out.














Early voted in Arkansas today



Felt great!


Edit to add: fairly busy at election headquarters. Electronic voting machine with a paper back up.

Finally!!!

We the people have called our Representatives, protested, campaigned, and VOTED.

In the words of a great man "YES WE CAN".

The battle of our House was won in the great Blue Wave of 2018. We are the big tent that protects our democracy and human decency.

Yes. We can. And we did.......

IMPEACH MF45!!!!!!!!!
