Yeah, this sucks.

Yeah, this sucks.

Our 12-year-old, Nowell, says this a lot. Aside from my dislike of the inappropriate language, I admit I have to agree with him.

It’s been four months since the ‘world stopped’ and doesn’t look to really be getting better. 

I’m sick of it. 

You are sick of it.

To bring a little levity, I thought I might share a few of the items I think might fit the mood well.

 

 

Ok, in true The Simple Man style, I can’t live in the wallowing. There has been some good that’s happened in the last few months. It is all about perspective.

I’ve gotten really savvy at managing our online store.

Teddy has gotten more snuggles and walks than ever before.

Our family has spent a lot of time together: game nights, home-cooked meals, time outdoors tubing and fishing, and nights watching more sunsets and stars.

In trying times, if you can, please keep trying to find the good and the blessings.  There are many out there.

So, let’s shift and share some inspirational and fun items to fit the better mood.

 

 

 

You know, come to think of it, there is another thing my son Nowell always says (Usually when something breaks or isn’t working well): “It’s fine, Dad.  It’s gonna be fine”.

He’s probably right.

It’s simple

Kurt walks in, sits in the leather chair, and we can talk for hours.

As I have shared before, I have a great love for the outdoors, but there is nothing, I mean nothing like visiting one of our 62 national parks. Of the ten parks I’ve visited, only one has been without a backpack on my shoulders and that was Grand Canyon NP.

I believe and have for a long time, that in this world, we hold more similarities among us than differences. Our differences make us grow, learn, and expand in ideas/understanding of each other, but our similarities start the conversation and help us connect to get to that good stuff.
