It’s raining today. I’ve always loved the sound of rain. My uncle used to tease me because I had a rain and thunderstorm CD. I listened to it faithfully as if it were the newest Adele or Frank Ocean CD. It doesn’t rain often in Arizona and when it does, it’s usually just for a few minutes. The infrequency causes me to appreciate and enjoy the rain even more.
This week I had lunch with a friend. I don’t get to see her often but when I do I always enjoy it. I accidentally left my phone in the car during our lunch and even though I felt kind of naked without it, it was so good to have a conversation with no distraction. Lunch with my friend was great because I don’t see her often, enjoy catching up when I do, and because I spent time with my undivided attention on her. This weekend, consciously choose to enjoy the presence of the people you are around. Disconnect (your phone) so that you can connect (with someone).
Saw this online. A girl had her friends over for a party and this basket was at the front door.
Try it. Have a great weekend!
