Dear friends, having both girls at home in many ways has been wonderful, but given Marienne’s ongoing needs for Occupational Therapy and the intensive work I’m doing with her to try and get (keep?) her reading skills up to the level of her peers, I have less time than I did pre-quarantine. Add starting a garden and increased farm work on top of that, the blog, unfortunately, often falls to the bottom of my to-do list. I’ll be decreasing the frequency with which I post to about once a week for the time being. Please, take care of yourselves, stay home as much as possible, and ask for help when you need it. The news is scary, but there is also an abundance of good coming from people, too: free classes and web tours from educational services and zoos; neighbors offering to pick up groceries for others; even the sharing of hoarded toilet paper. I always suggest reading Psalms in times of trouble, I have a few that I’ve read and discussed at the link, but there are many wonderful ones to (re)discover yourself, if turning to the Bible helps you at this time. I’ll be back soon!
