Choices

We make choices every single day; what to eat, what to wear, what to do.  We make choices that are sometimes good ones, sometimes not so good.  But we always have a CHOICE.

So in this troubling time with Covid-19 rapidly spreading throughout the world, let’s make some good choices.  Choose to stay home at all times.  Choose to wash your hands with warm water and soap A LOT! (of course this should be a given that we do this, however, there are people out there who need to be reminded to do this).  Choose to check on neighbours, older relatives and friends who are alone to make sure they are all right.  Choose to do the right thing – we all have it in us to do the right thing. 

I heard this song yesterday while I was sitting on the balcony, enjoying the afternoon sun, and I couldn’t help but think how appropriate this song is right now.  We all have choices to make – why not choose the ones that will save people’s lives?   Be safe everyone!

Lyrics

I’ve had choices
Since the day that I was born
There were voices
That told me right from wrong
If I had listened
No I wouldn’t be here today
Living and dying
With the choices I made

I was tempted
By an early age I found
I liked drinkin’
Oh, and I never turned it down
There were loved ones
But I turned them all away
Now I’m living and dying
With the choices I made

I’ve had choices
Since the day that I was born
There were voices
That told me right from wrong
If I had listened
No I wouldn’t be here today
Living and dying
With the choices I made

I guess I’m payin’
For the things that I have done
If I could go back
Oh, Lord knows I’d run
But I’m still losin’
This game of life I play
Living and dying
With the choices I made

I’ve had choices
Since the day that I was born
There were voices
That told me right from wrong
If I had listened
No I wouldn’t be here today
Living and dying
With the choices I made

Living and dying
With the choices I made
