I promise that I am not a total recluse.
I love people, but I was born an introvert. Someone who feeds off of alone time. I just need it.
Memorial Day weekend in the Myrtle Beach area is horrendous. With a capital H. It's Bikefest. It's a 3 day weekend. We are at the beach. It's a deadly combination.
My sweet hubby has to be on long patrol hours during Memorial Day weekend. I would just rather be one less person to protect and serve during one of the busiest weekends of the year.
Most people have big cookout plans with friends and family... I make my famous strawberry jelly for the year.
Many shop and stock up for summer... I clean my embarrassingly neglected house.
Lots of people rest on the beach with thousands of their favorite rowdy friends... I try to read a book.
Wah Wah Wah.... Boring huh?
Maybe. But it works for me and my old soul. It does my heart good. It gets me ready for a season of busy along side the greatest of people.
Sometimes you need to stow away. Try it. Let me know how amazing you feel.
Quiet does your heart and mind a great service. You also have space to think about those precious men and women who have died so that we can grill hamburgers with our friends safely. And breathe a prayer for those who are currently serving so that we can keep putting those burgers on the grill next year. In peace.
Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
Love and Laughter,
