[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0MjQ5OTU3X0I0QTE0MDU1] The Least of These http://www.kkoh.com/rssItem.asp?feedid=116&itemid=29934441 "The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.' Matthew 25:40 We've been hearing 100 stories about how wretched people can react when confronted by hardship. Most of the GLP community won't read these words, but for the few that enjoy reading these prep tips, here's a heart-warming story. A group of registered nurses in a Neonatal Intensive Care unit (NICU) had to evacuate their unit of neonate patients in the midst of Hurricane Sandy. They'd lost power, and were located nine floors up. The babies were very susceptible to the elements, medically fragile, and were all on oxygen. The only way to handle it was to gentle bag them with a handheld medical device so they'd get oxygen and hand carry them down the flight of stairs and on to safety. Sure, someone might eventually come to help them, but that would take a lot of time and all the rescue personnel were already deployed. With the security guards help, they managed to extricate themselves and their charges. During a catastrophic event, we have responsibilities as the children of the Source. We can be selfish and only take care of ourselves and family, or we can reframe and see the Other as our brother and sister. Yeshua, sent by the Source said that “whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” There may be very little we can do, if an event is widespread, but in the interim time as it builds up, we might be able to help those who come along. Many of these people may not be able to care for themselves. They may have lost loved ones. They may be totally alone. They may be sick or dying. They may be a drain on what few resources we have. When the end comes and you face your Maker, wouldn't you rather be able to look up into the eyes of the Source and say, “I was very fallible. I made many mistakes, but you know that I did some good as well, Lord. What comes around...goes around. That person you help save may help you. Maybe they won't, but maybe someone else will. Do the right thing when the chips are down. [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
