We are living through what has already promised to be one of the most trying times in the history of the world.
This pandemic (the Coronavirus) is not affecting only me, it’s affecting my brothers and sisters next door, those around the corner, in the next city, the adjoining states and my extended, chosen family … those of you across the waters.
RRBC cares about its members. And although our hands may never touch, and our eyes may never see, we support one another. We are here for each other.
Many of us are now confined to our homes – some willfully and others out of health compliance, so as not to even potentially spread this awful disease. The good thing (if there is one to be found in all of this) is that unlike awful situations of our past, we now have the world wide web to keep us company and entertained. It is the blessing (that I’m so thankful for) connecting us all.
Here at RRBC, we are going to carry on as best we can – continuing to offer the normalcy to your lives that you have become accustomed to with us. You need not worry that we are going anywhere (unless of course, something happens to me, which I’m not planning on). You will awake each morning, fully confident in knowing that when you’re bored or need something to do or someone to talk to, RRBC will be here.
I am willfully staying inside of my home, allowing my dear husband to take care of those frequent market runs I like to make, in my stead. I know that many of you rely on RRBC all day every day, and I’ve no intention of letting you down, especially during this time. Our supportive members can always be found on social media, spreading your name and pushing your books around the ‘net, and that always makes us feel good, doesn’t it?
We encourage you to gather here in the RRBC forum via our MEMBER CHAT, or on our WhatsApp channels (via your smartphones), to discuss any and everything you’d like. We are an international group so we’re open around the clock! Our PEER SUPPORT forum is also open, should you find yourself in the spirit to write and you have questions or need help with something. Listen, if ever there was a time to create, now would be it.
If you haven’t taken the time to submit a MEMBER EMERGENCY CONTACT form for us, please take the time to do so. This is the way that we’re able to check in on you should you become noticeably quiet on social media.
RRBC, stay safe, stay inside if you can, and let’s take care of one another, beginning with kindness.
Always listening and caring…
~Nonnie Jules, President & Founder
