June is officially SUMMER!!!!! And it looks like this June we all might even get a chance to enjoy all the terrific summery things we loved and missed so much last year. Even in oh so hot Sedona, we can grill outside with friends, find a cool creek to sit beside or play in, go to an air conditioned movie, eat out, maybe go to a concert or music event. Hey, some of us might even be traveling, and what a joy that will be.
June also brings two special days that aren’t just about our fun in the sun ( or shade), but are days that resonate in our hearts. Flag Day is June 14th, and Father’s Day is June 20th. So many of us have family and friends who served in the military, and every one of us hold the freedoms of our country close to our hearts. On Father’s Day, it seems we take that day to honor all the special men in our lives, Dad’s or otherwise. Our own Julie Lilly had offered to write our first new SK Kindness Column since the pandemic (THANK YOU, Julie), and what moved her heart this month resounds perfectly with these two special days. As I read what Julie wrote about her Dad and husband, it was as if those two men were stellar examples of what kindness and SedonaKind is all about. And the poem she chose to gift us with, well, it’s just perfect.
So happy summer days everyone. Settle back, enjoy a glass of icy lemonade and enjoy our very first new Kindness Column of 2021. Drink a toast to all the Dads in your lives, and the flag of our country.
