Use Each Day~Make It Count
Susan Reichert @SouthrnWritrMag
Editor-in-Chief Southern Writers
With everyone having to stay in their homes, our attitudes are the things most of us are having to monitor.
As I told my children (who are grown) we can decide each day to use our day and make it count or we can complain and gripe. Staying in a good frame of mind is important––physically, mentally, emotionally and spirtually, for all of us.
I pray God, through His grace, will bring all of us through this better than we were when it started.
For writers we have the opportunity while this is going on to write a new story, or finish one we
have been working on.
There are many things as a writer we can do during the days we are home. I am hoping I will be able to finish some projects I have put off for a long time. It gives me a sense of accomplishment each time I get one completed.
And I get to spend more time with my family which I am grateful for thanks to Zoom. Since we don't live close we use this to visit. It is very comforting.
So many things we take for granite––like being able to run up to the grocery store and grab a four pack of toilet paper, paper towels, milk and bread. Now we only go once a week, and seeing the shelves bare is mind boggling.
During this time let us pray for one another, keep good thoughts, and make each day count in our own way.
