Hi Fiona, thanks for a timely reminder. Stress is caused by fear (false evidence appearing real) and lack of knowledge. If we take our time and go one step at a time, it makes life just a little easier.
thank you again for keeping us all out of harms way.
have a great day
Stephen.

Fighting anxiety is the hardest part for most of us
And the uncertainty of how things will evolve indeed
Let us keep faith and seek the roots of our anxiety
And work on them to be healed...
