When you’ve lived as long as I have you learn that life is filled with it’s share of hardships and adversities, but I learned early that one of the best things a person can do is try to identify any positives you can find in any difficult situation. There have been few more difficult times than the ones we’re living through because of the Corona Virus Pandemic. But, it’s not all doom and gloom. The time we’re spending with our families during the “stay at home order” actually provides us with an ample opportunity to actually communicate with the people we share our households with. At least so far, my friends in law enforcement tell me the sharp uptick they had expected in calls for scuffles, domestic violence and theft incidents with people cooped up in their homes hasn’t materialized. Schools have been closed through Friday May 1, but the new order issued by our Governor yesterday didn’t call for school closures for the remainder of the school year. At least not for now. Perhaps the most positive thing I can point to is the fact that it appears warmer temperatures and at least a little sunshine will be headed our way later this week. If we all looked life as a glass that’s half-full instead of half-empty, we’d all be better off. That’s the way I see it.
