Today I met a beautiful couple on their honeymoon. They are “National Park” people as they put it and I immediately felt comfortable. I understand those people because I am one of them.
We talked about trivial things. It is always a delight to hear about adventurers journeys. When I handed them their grilled cheese to go, I got an elbow bump. The safest, most surprising way to make contact and offer appreciation.
It was a small moment, but one that stuck with me throughout the day. It’s those little moments of connection that make all the difference. Even when the world is in a pandemic, we can find ways to share our thanks.
To those National Park Honeymooners, I wish you all the best. To all of us, I say, let’s connect and share joy everyday.
