Coronavirus and Our Neighbor

Good morning! 

It is raining. The yard has puddles everywhere. I have not Heard the geese passing by the windows, so I think they are under a building sheltering. There is a stark contrast from the grey sky and the brilliant white of the pear blossoms. 

We did our disabled neighbor's shopping this week. No one else would go. I guess they are scared of getting sick. "T" cannot easily leave home without a lot of trouble, so he has not seen the barren shelves in the stores. 

He can be...particular...about his Groceries. Knowing that, I was concerned about not pleasing him as I made the purchases with the shortages and limitations. I joked with the cashier that I'd have our neighbor call her so she could explain. 

As it turned out, T was very thankful for what was found. I am praying his aids will continue to take care of him even if this gets bad. They have a history of being "unavailable" when extreme situations arise. We can't let him not have medical care, go hungry, sit for long in his own waste, or be stuck in his bed (or chair). If needed, we will figure this out as we go along.

We did not let him pay us for the groceries. We suggested he take the money and purchase more for himself. He would not have any of it and blessed us with some deer and squirrel he harvested. This was accomplished by him asking Emily what her favorite wild animal was. She said deer, and then a large frozen portion of one was put into her arms quickly followed by three frozen squirrels in zipper bags. I wish you could have seen her expression! I wish you could have heard her relaying the story. LOL! Country life! 

For those who don't know, T has muscular dystrophy and is bed bound until someone puts him in his wheelchair. Then, he is chair bound until someone puts him back into bed. With only one good arm and a warrior like attitude, he hunts, fishes, cooks, cleans, and makes crab pots to sell. 

Real heroes don't play sports and make millions. They are all around us marching along as best they can in very difficult circumstances with a champion mindset. They are for the most part unnoticed by the media and often need a helping hand.

A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; 
but the simple pass on, and are punished.
