Homefolks U.S.A.

Hi folks,

Thanks for giving me a much-needed rest for the past few weeks. You have to have a clear mind to write a good story, and my mind has been everything but clear.

I am trying my best to keep a good attitude about the situation our country is in at this time. I know that all will be well if we keep our hearts and minds upon the one who has control over it all.

This week’s story is dedicated to a good friend who gave me a very positive statement that I would like to share with all readers of Homefolks U.S.A. The statement goes as follows: “Life isn’t about waiting for the storms to pass; it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”

Certainly we have a storm that we are all encountering at this time. It’s a storm we have never had to endure before. What lesson can we learn?

This storm has spoken to people in so many different ways. It has brought out the selfish side of many people, and that is really sad, but it has also brought out the charitable side in others.

I hope we can all remember we are in this together, and if we stay united, then everything will be OK.

Bad times will make us appreciate the good times when they return; until then, let us all learn how to dance in the rain.

Wishing for all the very best, and may God richly bless everyone.

Til next time,

Your friend,

Bobby
