what does that mean? People say it all the time. down to nothing but there was gas to go to the store. Down to nothing but there is food. Down to nothing but there are 14 pair of shoes. Down to nothing but there is shampoo, dish soap, laundry soap, essential oils, supplies, cat and dog food, spices in the pantry, food in the freezer.
What does down to nothing really mean in your household?
In mine, it means the change jar is empty. It means the food stamps are spent. It means there is no cereal, no milk, no gas in the car, no cat food, ONE pair of shoes each, holes in our clothes, no ingredients for cleaners, and 4 days to go till anything replenishes.
I got up this morning, made herbal tea thanks to a friend who sent me a box of tea bags, and pulled on a pair of warm hand knit socks. I said thank you to the Goddess and a bit later, a lady I’m making hats for asked me if she could pay me half of what she’ll need to give me for 4 hats she’s commissioned since she has the money NOW.
Just when you are tempted to think you have nothing, you realize because of your friends, in your hands, you have exactly what you need.
