Stay Positive

Sign “Keep Smiling and Carry On”

Times are sad

But dont dwell on on the bad

Stay calm and do your part

Keep hope alive in your heart

Don’t let fear creep in

Stay positive to win

Soon too, this will pass

Vanish as vaporous gas

We must stand strong en masse



A born and raised Midwesterner who traveled to Oregon in 2006 via the Oregon Trail route, fell in love with Oregon and now call it home. I am retired and pursuing my life long dream of becoming a Freelance Inspirational Writer.

  1. Yes, this will pass and become just a memory to think back on. But it can be difficult “going through” these days. I don’t fear this thing, but am staying in to be on the safe side. Also, I have a bit of a cough because of the chronic sinus condition I have had most of my life, but others might be afraid if I coughed near them. I don’t want to be responsible for putting fear into anyone. My neighbor called yesterday and offered to get groceries for me. She is a PSW and has to go out all the time. It’s good to know there is someone close who is able to do this for me. Keep well Leona. And keep writing and painting. I look forward to your posts. You light up the day. God bless you.

    1. Oh thank you so much for the kind words Diane. It blesses me to know you enjoy my writing and art.

      I too have a chronic cough that I’ve had for years, it’s either asthma or allergies or both doctors have said, so yes, I know the feeling of not wanting to go out around people at this time and pray I don’t cough while in a store. My grandson has offered to go shopping for me though so I am thinking of letting him do so. I am not fearful, but as you say I don’t want to cause others undue stress at this time, however going on a walk is a different story as either I am alone or go with my neighbor who knows my health issue of the coughing was way before this virus was even heard of.

      Blessings to you Diane. I do enjoy “visiting” with you here on my blog. Thanks for always stopping by and commenting. ❤️

      1. You are more than welcome Leona. I am currently listening to (and watching when I’m not doing other things) The Cry day of fasting and prayer across Canada. It is really good. Many spiritual leaders are taking part and thousands are watching on Zoom or FB.
