Reflections on the difficulties and joys experienced from working at a camp in a Covid world
Reflections on the difficulties and joys experienced from working at a camp in a Covid world

This year has been interesting to say the least, but it has also been challenging, inspiring, and unifying in such a beautiful way. We were encouraged to gain new perspectives on life and the meaningful aspects of our existence while completely letting go of our ideas on societal normalcy. This is already a globally memorable experience, and hopefully we can utilize the strength gained during this time to continue meeting others in the face of adversity.

Every Dime Goes Right Back To Local Pockets
Every Dime Goes Right Back To Local Pockets

When Collins Metal was paying $12 per 100 pounds, customers were lined up a long way in both directions on business 74 in the eastern edge of Forest City.

"We were paying between 35 and 40 thousand (dollars) per day and every dime of it was going right back into this community," Barry Collins said of a business that has benefited the local economy for over 90 years.

How are you doing today?

When someone asks you how you're doing, how do you respond? Do you just pass off their question as a greeting and just say, "Fine" or "Okay"? Do you launch into a laundry list of complaints you have about how you're feeling or what's wrong with you or how you were doing fine until that obnoxious Mr. Jones ruined your day?

Or, maybe you Live Positive like Mrs. Glick. Mrs. Glick was a very special lady. My friend met her when he was a teenager. She made a real and positive impact on his life.

Every time my friend asked Mrs. Glick how she was doing, Mrs. Glick said softly and sweetly, "I'm thankful for one more day." She lived to be 103 years old, greeting each day by being thankful for one more day.

So my friend, when asked how he's doing today, says like Mrs. Glick, "I'm thankful for one more day."

The next time someone asks, "How are you doing today?," even if you don't feel it, say, "I'm thankful for one more day" and keep saying it until you Live Positive like Mrs. Glick.
