This has been a weird week.
We have had a total of 15 employees from inside the store get the new strain of Covid (which may or may not be Covid at all but that’s what they call it now.)
So it has been especially tough, in a way, for us guys working on the yard. If we get sick…does the company shut down? The salesmen, even when healthy, are too lazy to do our job. They whine that it’s too hot much less trying to fill a truck order with 20 or 30 pieces of 2x12x24s.
Don’t get me wrong I like them all but dang they are lazy.
I did not get the vaccine while the boss was offering the weeks vacation check. Honestly I don’t want the stupid thing. It makes no sense at all to me.
But I may end up needing to do it for health reasons for someone I hold dear. And to be able to simply go grocery shopping with her in the near future.
If she needs a liver graft and I am capable of doing so, I know that I would need to be vaccinated. Other than that I don’t care about the shot.
Vaccine means…a substance used to stimulate the production of antibodies and provide immunity against one or several diseases, prepared from the causative agent of a disease, its products, or a synthetic substitute, treated to act as an antigen without inducing the disease.
Vaccination means…treatment with a vaccine to produce immunity against a disease; inoculation.
Now this is me talking. I’m not dissing anyone…just sharing my thoughts.
Ask any doctor and they will tell you getting vaccinated will NOT keep you from getting Covid or even the flu. It will also not keep you from being a carrier!
So what’s the point? Other than to prove that people are sheep. And to prove that a lot of people believe everything they hear.
For me getting the shot is a slap in God’s face. He built my body. And he has kept me from getting sick for 53 years. Getting the shot is like ok God, you’re not big enough to protect me from this one disease😮
I’ve had pneumonia once and other than a cold I have really never been sick.
I’m sort of repeating myself from a few weeks back but I still feel the same.
Brandon’s mom tested negative for a week straight while feeling miserable. Last Friday she tests positive. Brandon gets tested Monday and doesn’t have it. Doctors say he has enough antibodies to resist it. That’s because he has already gotten Covid and his immune system kicked in and did exactly what God designed it to do…create antibodies to fight it.
Angie has gotten the shot. Her immune system is not the greatest due to other health issues so I understand.
But every year from here on out she will need to get the vaccination again just like your supposed to do with the flu shot, which btw I’ve never taken. That’s why if you look at your card there are additional lines on it.
It’s not just a 1,2 shot and your done type of thing.
I guess I’m one of the ole timers in a young body. Because I agree that Covid is real. I believe Covid is killing folks but I also know that I could walk outside and get run over by a driver not paying attention.
My time is the hands of the Lord and not the confused state of this world.
But as I said above I feel I may have to get the shot to be able help that one person I love.
So what does a person with mixed thoughts do in this scenario? I keep praying about until I get an answer!
Brandon video chatted me yesterday, Saturday, with tears in his eyes😢 They are tearing down the house he grew up in. The house Jenn and I lived in while raising Erin & Brandon. His mom has gotten a trailer, with outside help, and is placing it where the old house was.
It was an emotional day for a lot of people. That was Jennifer’s dad’s house he grew up in with his siblings. So Pop and his brother were there as well to watch the house come down😢 I could hear all the sniffles while Brandon and I talked. A bitter sweet moment to say the least. There were a lot of memories made in that house, even for Jenn and I.
I shared the song Patient with several of you before I posted it here Friday. Angie has not talked to me since I shared it with her. We have always shared songs with each other but the last two I have shared I guess have across as wrong in her eyes.
I guess we see things from a different perspective now. I saw the song as a help to her with all she is dealing with and she was the first person I thought of when I heard it.
Maybe she took the opening line of I guess this is broken as a way of looking at our relationship. I’m in the friend zone again. And I’m perfectly fine with it…for now.
Maybe she felt that I was being selfish. I’m not sure since she will return my calls.
Maybe she just overworked herself and is just tired.
But it was God saying hey send this to Angie, Charity, Renee and D. They need it now. So I did.
But I can a relational meaning in the song…so I don’t know..
But anyway I have not talked to her in several days now and I really just want to hear her voice and her say I’m ok…you know.
Oh well that’s it for this week. May you all be blessed and remember…
Compassion for another is intentional!
