Dawn22, thank you so much for posting this. I'm a 74-year-old borderline catastrophist and am finding this hard to deal with (not worried about myself, just about my DH and my friends and family). These words have broken through a dark cloud like a bright ray of sunshine and I'm going to take it totally to heart.
Books will be read, cooking will be done, my garden will be weed-free and my house tidy (who am I kidding, I live with the untidiest man in the world). We'll go for walks, talk with friends on the phone and most -and best- of all we will laugh and be glad that we are together.
Good wishes to all.
