Comfort and harmony during self-quarantine

Many years ago when I was a single mom with two young daughters, my job as a secretary was our only source of income. At that time the community we lived in faced a contagious epidemic, and we were encouraged to consider quarantining our children at home for five weeks, even if they showed no symptoms of the disease.

I voluntarily took this step out of support for my family and our community, but I was feeling a deeper need for security than quarantining could provide. How would I pay our bills? How would I survive five weeks alone in our house with two active children? What would happen if they did become ill? 

We'd love to hear from you!
