The world is slowly going crazy…

In the last few weeks, my town has had multiple bank robberies, home invasions and gang-related incidents. There’s also been incidents of violence and arson in an ongoing war between tow truck companies.

Now a virus has turned March Break into a 3 week vacation trapped in our homes. Probably without t.p. since the store shelves are bare.

I went to the grocery store today and honestly, I felt like I was in a scary movie. I bought the last bag of unbleached flour. People’s carts were overflowing and the lines were long. The little old man in front of me in line purchased 20 cans of brown beans. I would hate to be his wife! Most shoppers just smiled at each other and shook their heads because…crazy!

This is how we rise up
Heavy as a hurricane, louder than a freight train
This is how we rise up
Heart is beating faster, feels like thunder
Magic, static, call me a fanatic
It’s our world, they can never have it

 I just hope that in the midst of rising crazy, we will remember that “love is the answer”.  If we work together and take care of those who need a little extra, we can survive all this and so much more.

Loud music helps. At least it does for me, so I chose a loud song with a great memory for this week’s tune. Last June, I was blessed to “rock out” with both of my kids at a Skillet concert. It was an item on this aging babe’s bucket list, so if crazy continues for awhile, at least there’s one less item to scratch off.

Go ahead and crank it up! It’s the Weekend!
