COT: Remember to check the AOMastodon thread for details about Shred-tember.  Prayers for families shifting into school year and kids as they go back/acclimate to home schooling. Be with any struggling with anxiety, depression, or who are just plain stuck in a rut from quarantine – that they get out, get moving and feel some relief from it.

Moleskin:
Remember that the mind fails long before the body does! I take comfort in that when I feel like more has been thrown at me than I can handle. You’ve got more in you than you think.
