I’m a Quitter!

Evidently, I am a quitter!  Something I never realized before…but this morning, after weeks and weeks of staying home and staying in and just…staying…I said “I quit!”  

For my QB (quarantine buddy), this whole unwanted adventure is a lark.  He is a happy camper just sticking around here, going from project to self directed project with occasional interaction with his fellow QB, me.  He is happy as a clam, a literal ‘in a shell on the bottom of the ocean’ clam. In fact, he says he has been in training for this his entire life!

I am a people person…family people, friends people, lunch pal people, shopping people, out and about people…all of that.  So this morning, I threw in the towel. Thus, the “Picture This” moment.  I sat having my breakfast yogurt and declaring I could not do this again today, let alone for many more weeks.   I quit!

Then I got myself dressed, ready for the day, made my bed, spent some time quietly contemplating God’s goodness to me…and I unquit.  Because I know this is what it takes to protect myself, my family, and others. I will stay home and stay in and just stay…for as long as it takes.  

Hebrew 12:1 challenges me with “…let us run with endurance the race that is set before us.” The verse continues with “looking to Jesus”.  So I did.  And you can, too.  Maybe it’s ok to quit, as long as we remember to unquit, too. See you at the finish line…whenever and wherever that may be!

  1. Oh, Connie, I have really been thinking about you during all these weeks of distancing ourselves from everyone! I know what a people person you are. Shame on me for not giving you a call! Since we were supposed to have the kids here for Masters, it was a double whammy for us! I have tried to focus on the positive things that have come out of this experience. Our Lord has taught me so much. Thankfully I am a fairly patient person. Even I have become weary of staying in. We will get through this and certainly always remember these days. Oh ,and I totally believe that your Kevin is loving it!🥰


    1. Have no fear! I am doing great! I think it hits all of us from time to time and this morning was my time. So many people have experienced a much greater disruption. You guys just stay well and safe so we can make up form lost time one day!
