The tulips have begun to pop-up outside QB Gelato & Café. The sun is making the shop bright and warm and every time the door opens and the spring air comes wafting through, you know the seasons are changing.
In these uncertain times, when anything can change in a heartbeat, where words like "unprecedented" and "life-altering", have become part of our new vernacular, there are some things we can practice that will provide comfort in these troubling times.
Try as you may to control the future, sometimes all you can do is trust that whatever happens, you can adapt and make the best of it. As we straddle familiarity and the unknown, we've been thinking a lot about dealing with uncertainty well.
FINDING WAYS TO BE KIND
Recently we dropped off supplies at the local food bank, a care package to a neighbor, and purchased a case of wine and shipped it to a friend quarantined. All of this has become part of servitude to others.
Servitude, gives us a sense of control in a situation we have no control of. It also fills us up with gratitude, which can pull us out of even our lowest lows during this crazy time. If you find your mood slipping while you're weathering this storm, finding ways to help others and show kindness can turn it all around. Servitude reminds us all that our contributions can have positive impacts on the world. It also reminds us that people in our community depend on you; we depend on you to make good decisions about your hygiene and your health for the betterment of the community; and we depend on you to bring positivity and ideas and innovation, for the betterment of our global community.

YOUR SUPPORT OF LOCAL IS CRITICAL AT THIS TIME
We remain OPEN. But we will not be able to weather the storm without your support. Spread the word, tell your friends, tell your family, tell your co-workers. Your love and support is so appreciated and QB Gelato wants to come out on the other side of this pandemic strong and viable for years to come - serving the Okanagan community fresh, hand-crafted, local goodness.
Our current circumstances won't last forever. But remember:
Stay connected with each other.

And keep fighting, hope is on the way, and better days are coming.
