Thank you, Peggy. The compassion shown is so reflective of you and your compassion. nt

My (only surviving) brother was married there ca 55 yrs ago.

Unfortunately the marriage only lasted about 10 yrs. - 2 sons.
Our family came from Ohio, and the church was a lovely setting for the wedding, as are all the remaining CA mission churches that I've seen over the years.

Trump campaign is known for stiffing all the cities they visit/invade with

campaign visits and rallies.
Just the same as he has stiffed so many that worked or fulfilled contracts for his gain.

Laura, I'm in the same situation, likely even older than you and every underlying condition...

However, the day after 45 was known to have won the Electoral College, I made up my mind not to let him make me bitter or ruin my life any more than could be avoided.

I have seen enough electoral losses, Presidency especially, - all the way back to Adlai Stevenson when I was in high school- that were so devastating at the time. But life went on, perhaps not all that we wanted but we/I had the capacity to find joy in everyday things and not let that person pull me down.
It's not worth it to give that Person that much control over your life.

So we find the joy in the small things - birds, flowers, a visit to the Park.

Meanwhile, let's all work - with smiles on our faces- to get that rude imposter of a president removed from the White House and from our lives.

This psalm is the source for the beautiful hymn "On Eagle's Wings."

Thank you.

Is CPD Columbus, or Cincinnati or Cleveland?

I don't believe that occurred in Cincinnati.

Pray for peace in our nation.

Terrible things have happened and are happening as I type.
We cannot continue in this manner.
May God grant us the resolve to live righteously, with respect for all people.

I understand. One has to choose very selectively.

For that reason I am isolated from my adult children, especially one who is in and out of convenience stores as part of his job and who also has a housemate who goes Lord knows where, as the housemate is not answerable to any of us.

I also have a daughter in a long-term care facility which has been in lockdown since early March. I miss her and she misses her freedom of movement, as she has not had a breath of fresh air in all that time.

My experience at the hairdresser Wed. - 3 days ago.

Ohio began permitting beauty salons to re-open on Monday, I believe.
I know my hairdresser quite well, and had spoken with her approximately weekly since early March.
We are both mature women, and the owner of the salon is not far behind. - All past 50, for sure.
I knew that my hairdresser was staying fairly close to her home during this period; she went out for a walk or a bike ride most days, but stayed home other than that.
I let her know, by phone, that I wanted to come in when the shop was nearly empty.
The salon's owner posted photos on her Facebook page showing the installation of plexiglass separators between the individual stations.
I wore my mask, as did the hairdresser and owner, who were basically the only others in the salon at the time. I had a thick plastic cape over my clothes. Another patron came in for about 20 minutes while I was there, and was seated several stations removed from me.
The hairdresser told me that waxing was not permitted as yet, which surprised me, in that tattoo parlors are now allowed to be open.
Magazines or other reading material had been removed.
The services I had were hair coloring, shampoo, light cut, and blow dry.
I was in the salon about 1 and 3/4 hrs.
I felt the whole process went well, and would say that , under these circumstances, one should not fear having hair done.

I'm so sorry to know that, sprinkeeninow.

You have been through a lot, and still you carry on day after day.
Be very kind to yourself, as you have been kind to others.
You're in my thoughts and prayers.
