    I sign each and every email, letter and correspondence with the closing of “Blessings”.  I don’t have it as an automatic closing, I actually sign or type it each time I write something.  Every time I write “Blessings” it reminds me of one thing; I wish you well (or good).  Whatever well means to you that is what I wish upon you.  No hidden agenda, no secret code, just Blessings, just “be well”.

    During this time that is effecting all of us, I wish you Blessings.  I wish you well.  I see difficult times around us, but also I see so many blessings.  From the many phone calls and emails, we receive each day, the stories and actions of the people of our region are incredible.  What our community is doing, as individuals and collectively, is nothing short of amazing.
    We wish blessings upon those whose businesses are interrupted and those who are out of work during these times.  We wish blessings upon our healthcare workers, our law enforcement, emergency medical workers and all those on the front line.  Those front lines have expanded to so many people, they are everywhere now.  Those working in stores and our farmers who still work hard to grow and provide us food.  Those working in non-profits who continue to provide to those in need.  Those working in manufacturing, in government, and so many other places are out there serving us all on the front lines.  There are so many others who continue to provide us blessings through this time. 

    The most important blessings I have for you is to be safe and healthy.  Please take care of yourself and your family.  Please remember to check on your neighbors, especially the elderly.
    Please know that we are here for you, we will help you in any way we can.  Member or non-member, it doesn’t matter.  We are here to help.

    We are in this together and we will get through this together – better and stronger than ever.
