November 25 – Everything is permissible, but not everything is beneficial.
Tonight, on this Thanksgiving Eve; I wish I had more to say, more to share. But I am tapped out. I can’t think of anything else to share than my thoughts that I posted to Facebook earlier this evening. Now is the time to think about others, to understand your impact on the bigger world.
Friends, I don’t know how else to say this; but please understand YOUR actions have direct consequences for people you don’t know. The increased spread of Covid-19 is directly impacting me, my staff and the residents we care for everyday. I have residents that cannot see their family members on Thanksgiving, I have staff that are choosing to forgo family gatherings because its NOT SAFE or we need them to work because staffing levels are approaching critical. Hospitals and Long term care facilities throughout the DFW Metroplex are being hit hard. Please think twice before meeting up with friends. And just because an event is allowed to happen doesn’t mean it’s necessarily safe. “Everything is permissible for me, but not everything is beneficial.” 1 Cor 10:23

“Our caregivers have gone on record asking you to do what you can to contain the virus. We expressed concern in public forums based on facts and our first-hand experience in the hospital. We asked you then to follow CDC guidelines: wear a mask, socially distance, stay out of mass gatherings, and wash your hands…Now we have 72 people needing beds in our 60-bed hospital while the rest of the Metroplex hospitals fill up. We are asking again that for the safety of everyone you help us slow this surge.” ~ 𝑪𝒊𝒏𝒅𝒚 𝑷𝒆𝒓𝒓𝒊𝒏, 𝑻𝒆𝒙𝒂𝒔 𝑯𝒆𝒂𝒍𝒕𝒉 𝑹𝒐𝒄𝒌𝒘𝒂𝒍𝒍 𝑷𝒓𝒆𝒔𝒊𝒅𝒆𝒏𝒕
