Gila's Place

A menagerie of eclectic things…

Found this on Facebook and have to say, I agree. – G

Not everyone agrees and thatโ€™s fine. But this totally states how I feel.

3 years from now, some of you will look back & admit that you spent an entire year of your life wearing a mask, cooped up in your house & avoiding all the people you love. ๐Ÿ˜ญ A year in your life that youโ€™ll never get back

Every single day is a risk. Car accident, flu, etc. Our days were numbered from the moment we took our first breath. Life isnโ€™t a race where we win against the inevitable! That has not changed since the beginning of time!

BUT, we should not be forced to live in fear.

We went from being a free nation to being told we:
๐Ÿšซ couldnโ€™t go to school
๐Ÿšซ couldnโ€™t go to church
๐Ÿšซ couldnโ€™t go to our grandma’s house
๐Ÿšซ couldnโ€™t pay respects to a loved one through a funeral
๐Ÿšซ couldnโ€™t leave our homes

…and when we were allowed to do these things, we were told:
๐Ÿ“ข how long we could be there
๐Ÿ“ข how far apart we have to be
๐Ÿ“ข which direction to walk
๐Ÿ“ข what to wear
๐Ÿ“ข what we can buy/not buy
๐Ÿ“ข where we could shop/not shop
๐Ÿ“ข whether we could sing/worship/take communion
๐Ÿ“ข what time we had to be home

Yes, our health matters. But you know what else matters?
โœ… Family.
โœ… Friends.
โœ… Church.
โœ… School.
โœ… Sporting events.
โœ… Family vacations.
โœ… Neighborhood BBQs.
โœ… Life.
โœ… Fitness.
โœ… Hugs.
โœ… visiting the hospitalizedEtc..etc…

๐Ÿ’” One day, youโ€™ll hug your grandma, mom, dad, or brother for the last time.
๐Ÿ’” One day, your best friend will cry on your shoulder for the last time.
๐Ÿ’” One day, your child will play their last hockey game.
๐Ÿ’” One day, theyโ€™ll have their last day of school.
๐Ÿ’” One day, youโ€™ll spend your last day laughing with a loved one.
๐Ÿ’” One day, youโ€™ll dance your last dance.

Donโ€™t waste the days you have by living in fear. Your time here on earth matters. Live your life while you have the chance. God is gonna call you home when itโ€™s your time. Virus or no virus.#FaithOverFear / #FreedomMatters / #RiseUp / #WakeUp
