Hello dear friends.
We all know what’s going on and we all know it’s not feeling great. We’re all experiencing disruption in one way or another and it’s extremely unsettling. In what is true and good news, some aspects of day to day life still go on. We’ve got each other in this little Let It Be Sunday post. We’ve still got hot coffee. We can take a long spring walk. We can grab a bucket and wash our cars (which I did yesterday and wow it oddly felt GREAT).
I hope you find a break from some of the chaos noise and a pleasant surprise in the disruption. That’s my sincere wish for you this weekend as we navigate this new and temporary reality.
