I sent this letter to friends and family today as a matter of self -care . Loneliness and personal isolation have been my demon this summer when normally I as teacher anticipate gatherings with friends and family. To offset it I looked outward instead of inward. I write..... As we progress through these changing times it needs to be said that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am aware of your lab tests and MD visits again this week so hope to chat as the week progresses. During quieter times of late, I have been enjoying walks with our dog in our neighborhood and local parks. I recently rediscovered “Sherman Gardens” which is available to view online. It is located near the beach of Newport, California approximately 25 minutes’ drive from our home. The splendor of the buzzing bumble bees pollinating the flowers, the beauty of the butterflies, and hummingbirds will remain imprinted in my mind as one of joyful memories of the summer of 2020. Then, unbeknownst to me, a few miles south I located a beach cove. So small and quaint that is open to the public. You would miss it, as I obviously have now for years, if you drive without looking or slowing down to see it. I loved sitting on the waters edge watching toddlers and mothers with their babies bask in the shallow water. It is also a place for standup paddleboarders and kayakers. As a kayaker myself, I look forward to my return one day soon. I look forward to the day when we can have church gatherings, and the day when the libraries are again open to the public. In the meantime, I appreciate the continued opportunity to share the love of our Lord in ways He provides. Some words of strength and wisdom for you to enjoy and share if desired too. “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” Isaiah 41:10
