Les and I took the wonderful opportunity this weekend to travel to visit our son, Brenin, who works on Cannon Air Force Base outside of Clovis, New Mexico. It has been a while since we’ve seen him and our parent hearts needed to spend some time with him.
I was a bit apprehensive about the trip because this was our first time flying post-COVID. Because of the lengthy quarantine period we have all been through and the civil unrest I have seen in the media, I was worried that the people around us would be more likely to ignore those around them and even be more rude than before.
What we found was totally opposite of this. We found very warm friendly people who jumped into action to help those around them. We found smiling eyes peering over masks. We found beauty, kindness, and compassion. Being around so many people helped me to realize how much I miss people. We enjoyed our road trip to Amarillo, Texas, so see some things we have never seen before, but our trip was rich because of the people we visited with and observed.
Our song for Sunday reflections this week is the great song by Louis Armstrong, “What a Wonderful World.” This world is wonderful because of so many things, but mostly because of the people that make life so wonderful.
The colors of the rainbow
So pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces
Of people going by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying, “How do you do?”
They’re really saying
“I love you”
We hope you have a very beautiful Sunday! We love you!
Elisa & Les
