Even with masks on, it was a return to some normalcy. It was a fun outing and a chance to get reacquainted with friends, in person. There were even moments that I forgot how much has changed.
The goats seemed just as excited to see us. Perhaps it was just the fistfuls of kibble we had for them, but it was nice to be welcomed all the same.
I'm grateful for these moments of normalcy. I'm grateful to see my wonderful friends. I'm grateful to see everyone respecting each others' boundaries and choices as we walked this public area. I'm grateful for a fun, cheap way to get out. I'm grateful for all the excitement on my girls' faces. I'm grateful to see how much their friends have grown and reconnect. I'm grateful to see happy little goats nibbling out of my kids' hands. I'm grateful to just walk around outside and see the animals. I'm grateful for this day.
When was the last time you fed an animal that wasn't your pet? What have you done lately that you hadn't done in a long time? What are you grateful for today?
May today show us glimpses of the return to normal. May we celebrate each moment we get to share with the ones we love. May we take the time to give love and care to a sweet animal. Have a beautiful day!
