To Be Special

All in all, the summer – the days we live – do not have to be special to be perfect.

They just have to be.

Spent together.

Labor Day is a day meant to rest, to take a break and I know that there are a lot of things that can prohibit that from happening for everyone.

  • Working end of summer sales.
  • Parents who have to do last minute school prep (as in immunizations).
  • Empty refrigerators calling for grocery shopping (out of cream, baguette and cheese.)
  • Waiting tables as vacationers dine out for breakfast (we actually ate in this year.)
  • Making freshly made hot donuts (yes, they were available, but we opted out this holiday.)
  • Volunteering at carnival events that fund the rest of the year’s activities.

If you can, ignore those things – the call of the discount – the lure of the low-low-low prices and “must be at” events, to just be.

  • Be still.
  • Be quiet.
  • Be thankful.
  • Be in the moment.
  • Be together.
  • Be honest.
  • Be a family.
  • Be friends.
  • Be calm.
  • Be normal – your version of what normal is.
  • Be relaxed.

That is sometimes the best way to be special
