Covid-19. The VIRUS. The Pandemic. News and social media sites introduce a new piece of information, it seems, every time we tune in, turn on or log in. Information changes by the hour. Fears are abundant and the near future, job security, the economy, our individual health are all uncertain – a mystery. I am at a loss to understand the complexity of it all.
What I do know is that I will do my best to help my neighbors, our staff who continue to assist our customers and those around me who might need assistance.
I also know that I am grateful. I am grateful for much that I have taken for granted in the past. I’m thankful for a community which has surrounded our schools and teachers. This community has also begun to rally around local businesses to help them make it beyond these hard times. It will take communities bonding together to get us through the next challenging few months and back to normal life as we once knew it.
The future comes one day at a time. Take a deep breath. Do those things necessary to take care of family and basic needs. Be compassionate and patient, with yourself and with others. We are all walking this journey together but may be experiencing it very differently. Be gracious and generous. Keep hope alive and spread kindness, not fear or misinformation. We will get through this and possibly be wiser, stronger and more resilient on the other side.
Our office, like many others, remains open during regular business hours. However, as a precaution, keeping the health of our staff and customers in mind, we are not conducting business in person, only via phone and/or email contact. Our quality customer service remains our main objective as our customers are very important to us. If you need us, give us a call or shoot us an email. And… be well.
