I find myself asking, "What now?" I have already slowed down. I have already been released from my schedules and routines, napped longer, and soaked in the quiet. Right now it still looks like there are not going to be long days on the the lake with family and friends or hot, sunny days spent with the family at the pool or summer nights with friends, cookouts, bonfires and family vacations. It saddens me to think that this may be the new normal.
Summers are made for living outside the lines not worrying about washing hands, wearing masks and staying 6 feet away from others because we are afraid. We should be living loudly, loving fiercely and keeping our family and friends close.
May your summer be filled with tan lines, dusty feet, laughter and fireflies.
