Ebola

Well, let’s add one more frantic thing to worry about, shall we?!
I just got off the phone with my daughter, and she’s invested in masks already, fearing the worst concerning her infant son..
and frankly, I don’t blame her! I know some would say, don’t fall into the hysteria, hyped up by the media, but I would say, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Whenever a hurricane is possibly coming close in our direction, we get prepared, buy water, batteries, make sure the generator is in working order.etc. knowing that it may not hit us at all, but it would be foolish for us not to be cautious and be prepared..
My heart goes out to those people in west Africa who have such rudimentary facilities to fight this disease. I can’t imagine the fright that they’re experiencing.
So thankful that we live in a country that has the means to keep these kinds of things at bay.
As I sit here on the couch with a cough, runny nose and congestion…I am reminded, that no matter how horrible that I feel, I can get in my car and drive down the street to Walgreens and get a basket full of things to sooth my ailments. We are so blessed and have so much at our disposal. And then I can drive home to my air conditioned home and get back on my cozy couch with a cup of tea.
Those poor people in west Africa are laying on cots directly on the ground, no a/c, no a lot of things..and suffering in the heat. I pray that God would have mercy on them and that this terrible disease would cease to exist.
