A Little Help From Your Friends
Summer greetings to you. My daughter calls this Covid-Summer 2020. I don’t know if she’s correct with the term, but I do know this season is very different when you compare it to past years. I think the biggest change is the reopening of businesses and restaurants. Talking with folks, I’ve learned that some people have decided to stay home while others can’t wait to get inside their favorite establishments. And almost everyone is sad there aren’t going to be any town festivals or a state or county fair. So what’s a person to do?
Why not take this opportunity to reconnect with family and old friends? Maybe it will be a way for us to develop more of an appreciation for others and the simple things in life. Start by looking up an old friend or family member you haven’t heard from in a long while and take a moment to really listen to how they’re doing. I love to have a meaningful conversation with someone while we’re hiking through the woods or trails. Another of my favorite things is to sit out by the camp fire and talk while the flames relax and entertain us. A fun picnic with your children or grandchildren maybe a perfect opportunity to start a chat about what’s going on in their world. Or perhaps throw a bottle of wine with some glasses in your picnic basket and enjoy some time with that special someone. And while you’re out there in your perfect romantic spot, stop and smell the roses or the fresh air around you.
Other years there was almost too many things to do and it seemed summer slipped through our fingers before we knew it. I know that times have changed, but I going to look at this summer as a slower yet wonderful time to be alive. I hope you will too!
