Dear Sunday Letter friends,
How are you?
I don’t have to tell you about the sadness in our world right now—the unfolding horror in Afghanistan, the earthquake in Haiti, wildfires and water shortages, surging coronavirus, and so much more—but I do think from time to time we all need to remind each other to look for the goodness growing between the cracks of heartbreak. We should always be on the lookout for it.
Recently, John and I spent a week with our family at Lake Norfork. Being unplugged provided much needed time to rebalance and regroup. If you aren’t in the practice of stepping away from the chatter of news and people and busyness, I highly recommend it, even if stepping away is as simple as going for a walk or getting lost inside a good book.
The constant negativity can really affect a person.
