As the weather is cooling down, my family and I are making the most of every warm(ish) evening. We’re lucky enough to live by the beach and so sunset drinks by the water have been a frequent affair.
This last Friday was no different, and there was definitely no shortage of wine.
I’ve really been appreciating time with my family recently. It’s something we so easily take for granted. But I’ve been thinking a lot about the families devastated by Harvey and Irma. I’ve been thinking a lot about the violence in Myanmar. I’ve been thinking a lot about the attack on the London Tube. And I can’t help but feel like I want to hold my loved ones a little closer. Tell them that I love them. Let the hug last a little longer than usual. Savor the sweet moments.
Because aside from recognizing our own privilege and helping out where we can, that’s all we really can do.
I’m feeling small and vulnerable, but feeling loved and very very lucky.
All my love to you, too.
