A few brief words about fear

    Courage is not the lack of fear but the ability to face it.”
    —- Lt. John B. Putnam Jr. (1921-1944)

"Fear gets a bad rap.  As little children we’re told, “Don’t be afraid.” The worst possible insult for a  young boy is being called, “scaredy cat.”  And yet, if it weren’t for a bit of fear, how many men would voluntarily go to the doctor for a prostate exam?  Fear of being fired from a job pushes us out of a warm bed on a cold, dark morning.  It’s that little bit of fear that says, “If I don’t do what I fear, maybe something worse will happen.”  Very often, it’s fear that

prods us into taking helpful and positive action.

When you read the headlines, and there have been some doozies lately, you’ve probably felt fear.  The future of America, and our families, has never been less secure, and the world seems to be coming apart, from Europe to the Middle East.  But if you’re reading this blog, no doubt you faced that fear, looked it in the eye, and said, “I’m going to do everything in my power to provide for, protect, and nurture my family.”

What you’re full of is courage, not fear.

I’m not saying that I never feel fear.  I do, and on a regular basis.  But it’s not the feeling of fear that’s harmful.  It’s wallowing in it.  Refusing to get out of bed in the morning; neglecting home, family, and responsibilities because you’re frozen in a cowering position.

Survival Moms do not cower! We feel the fear, let it settle in, knowing it’s just a temporary visitor, and then brush it off.  Once we’re past the fear, we can dangle it in front of us, look it over, analyze it, and then take action.  Our kids, husbands, and other loved ones deserve a strong Survival Mom, and just in case you’ve been feeling that maybe you’re not quite measuring up, trust me.  You’re doing just fine.

You know what to do.  Even the smallest baby steps add up over time to significant measures, each step bringing your family closer to being prepared for whatever comes."

Update: Instant Survival Tips from the SurvivalMom site,

INSTANT SURVIVAL TIP: Super-cheap medical supplies


I hit the jackpot this last weekend, and it was a pretty big one.  My kids and I were doing the estate/garage sale route, and one of the estate sales we visited had a huge amount of medical supplies at rock bottom prices.  When I saw boxes of latex exam gloves for a dollar a box, I grabbed them all!  Also on the shelf were boxes of bandaids, sterile gauze pads, rolls of adhesive and gauze tape, and antibiotic ointment packets.  In all, I spent $8 and left with a ton of supplies for our first aid kits!

Very often, elderly patients receiving in-home care accumulate supplies just like these.  They’re perfectly good, sometimes come in never-opened packages, and are a quick and easy way to stock up. You also may find stethoscopes, thermometers, heating pads, and a lot more.  Keep an eye out for estate sales, in particular, especially if you live near a retirement community.

In this article below, B.O.B doesn't mean "bed and breakfast,"
it means bug out bag.

INSTANT SURVIVAL TIP: A Germ Killing Must-Have for your B.O.B.

Recently, I bought an E-Cloth after learning how it could help keep my house more sanitary.  It’s a pretty amazing invention, a microfiber towel that has been proven to remove 99% of bacteria from hard surfaces using only water.  It’s been great using it in the kitchen, but I think it’s also something worth packing in Bug Out Bags (B.O.B.).

First, there is no need to also pack cleaning solutions and chemicals.  As long as you have access to water, the E-Cloth’s impressive bacteria-killing properties go to work.

Second, the E-Cloth saves money on the purchase of cleaning products, and the E-Cloth itself lasts for 300 washings!

e cloth INSTANT SURVIVAL TIP: A Germ Killing Must Have for your B.O.B.Third, you never know where you’ll be when you pull out that Bug Out Bag.  It’s likely that sanitation won’t be the primary concern, and yet you’ll want to protect your family from exposure to invisible bacteria.  You’ll be able to clean surfaces at campgrounds and even FEMA shelters!

There is a surprisingly large array of E-Cloths, including one for the bathroom.  Keep one with your vehicle’s First Aid Kit, Bug Out Bags, and yes, one in the kitchen and bath!
