When it comes to friends, we’re all Young at Heart. And with a sentiment that says, “Laughing with you is the best therapy”, it’s the perfect set to celebrate friendship!
My grandmother used to tell me she’d wake up in the morning and wonder who that old woman was staring back at her in the mirror. She said she never felt as old as she looked. And I totally get it! I look at my son and wonder how he got so old when I’m still in my 20s? And when I get together with my friends or my sister…watch out! Let’s just say, you know you’re having fun when your son gives you very strange glances, as if to say, “Who are you and what have you done with my mother?”
In this time of social distancing, it’s become even more important to stay close to friends and family through social media. We’ve learned that self-isolation doesn’t mean we’re alone. And that thanks to technology such as Facetime, Zoom, and Facebook, we can stay connected and sane.
Last Sunday night, I sat on my screened porch with a nice glass of wine and my fairy lights twinkling, Zooming with a dear friend, Sarah. She had lit a fire in her fire pit and we laughed and chatted for a few hours, watching the almost-full moon rise behind her. And while I longed to give her a hug and clink our “cheers” together, the time we spent was just as dear to me as if we’d been together. We laughed until we cried…and cried until we laughed…only ending the evening because the batteries on our laptops were dying.
You see…we really are all Young at Heart and Laughing with you really is the best therapy! Come join my 8 am Coffee and Cards every morning, and laugh with me as we remember that being creative really is a form of self-care. See you tomorrow!
