I woke up Saturday morning, got out of bed and headed for the kitchen. On the fridge is a calendar. I looked up as always and noticed that it wasn’t July anymore!!? I turned the page to reflect August 1st and thought, “where on earth has summer gone”? Is it just going by real fast? Is it because it’s Wisconsin and one day it’s 90 where the next day is 63? Is it this damn Covid?? Maybe a combo of all 3? Granted, with our lives changing drastically in 2020 it doesn’t help that there are NO events this summer. To me it seems like I’m stuck in time. Like it’s still spring and summer has yet to start! Either way it’s sad but instead of getting angry or down in the dumps I’m trying to make the best out of things. I hate to even talk about “the big C” anymore but the fact is this has interrupted everything in our lives. I pray, cross my pinkies, cross my toes, etc. that EVERYTHING will change for the better soon. I’m thinking positive vibes that next summer is going to be the best summer in YEARS and we can get back to normal somehow. Hang in there. I’m not getting stressed out. I’m not paying attention to any of the millions of “opinions” or theories I see on Facebook and other social media outlets. I’m trusting in my positive vibes that I’ll get thru all this. I take it as it comes and form my own thoughts and opinions. Think positive. I WILL get thru all this and I’m so looking forward to all the wonderful events returning next summer. Looking forward to the day I can sit down in an establishment with friends and family and enjoy life again. My point is…the IS a sunny side to the summer going so fast. I hopefully will make things go quicker to us getting back to a normal in life. Stay positive. I look forward to the fall season now as you will know when it’s here with all the vibrant, wonderful colors in the Northwoods. Let’s hope the fall doesn’t FLY by like the summer did. Did I mention….STAY POSITIVE!!?
