Tonight, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris spoke to Americans for the first time as president and VP elect. I cried, my heart grew, for the first time in a long time, I felt an old familiar feeling of hope, of faith in a leadership team. I felt humanity seen and spoken about with grace and care. I relished in the fireworks at the end, like a summer barbecue with family. Everything was so….nice. A breath of air, a line for hope. I won’t forget this night. It has me light with wonder. We will come out on the other side of this pandemic. We will. We will.
I surprised my husband this week during his lunch break. It’s been a rough week for us, and the country. Sometimes it’s great to step out of your comfort of routine, to mix up the scenery.
When an accident becomes a little gift.
Our neighbors across the street brought this over today. She carved it from some of the branches fallen in our yard. She told us, “To never forget the 2020 Ice storm!” But it is the cutest thing ever. And the same neighbors across the way cleared our front yard from all the branches….just because. They said they see us work hard trying to support our family. 😭❤️ I mean….nothing ever beats good neighbors.
