thought for these times

This is not me.
      ~ by Ronni Sandroff

I'm now enjoying long phone calls, which I've hated since my teenage years.  
               This is not me.

My drawers and closets are so organized they make me gasp.
               This is not me.

We now have three dozen eggs in the refrigerator. I usually wait to buy until we run out.
                This is not me.

I also own two cans of asparagus (blame husband). I hope things don't get so bad that we have to eat them.

I am reading book books. Still have plenty on my iPad but long sits on the balcony are better done wiht book books, even though I forget and poke at words expecting definitions to come up.

I spent yesterday afternoon sewing embroidered patches on a blue jean vest. Thinking of adding some lace at the pocket. I'm finding the project diverting.
                 This is not me.

I'm delighted when I get an email, text or call from one of you and look forward to us Zooming forward together.

This at least is totally me.

Never before has our country faced a situation like what we are living through now with the onset of COVID-19.  We’ve weathered war, recessions, depressions, and day-to-day life with determination, resilience and a can-do attitude. 
 
I believe these are times when Americans, and especially women, prove why we are able to carry on.  We’re not defeated by challenge.  We rise up, work together and solve problems. 
 
We began this year excitedly planning to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of The Transition Network.  During these 20 years, as individuals and as a community, we have persevered through difficult challenges.  Granted, these challenges may not have come with the fear and uncertainty we now face from this coronavirus, but we’ve battled isolation, loneliness and loss.  We’ve moved on from roles we have loved and to which we dedicated our lives.  We’ve endured all of the transitions that life delivers at this complicated and often confusing stage of our lives.
 
Ultimately we’ve proven that being part of TTN has mattered.  Since the very beginning, hundreds of volunteers have dedicated their time, energy, and creativity to leading chapters, organizing groups, planning programs and events all with a singular purpose of connecting you. And it mattered.
 
Year after year, you joined, renewed your membership and donated to our annual appeals because you felt the value of being a member. The most precious value delivered?  Connection.
 
In these times of social distancing, it’s easy to ask, “Gee, since we can’t meet face to face, what’s the value in continuing my membership in TTN?  Where’s the connection?”
 
As in the past, the Women of TTN are responding to our new normal by completely switching gears.  Our chapter leaders are embracing technology to start online peer groups so you can share your feelings and once again realize you’re not alone. Your SIG leaders are organizing book and movie discussions, game dates, recipe sharing sessions among others, to keep you connected while you are safe in your own home.  And you are responding by embracing the training we offered on how to participate or lead meetings using video conferencing.  Over 600 members and guests signed up for these sessions!
 
This proves my earlier point.  At time of challenge like this, TTN women aren’t pausing. We’re not taking a break. We’re not sitting on the sidelines until all of this passes.
 
On the contrary.  We’re rising up, putting our heads together and figuring it out. We’re using all of our skills to creatively reach out to help each other, to provide support and to find the silver lining in a situation that we can’t control.

Thank you for your continued support and engagement with our mission to connect women and help you discover your impact.  You are the reason we exist.

~ Susan
