Thankful Thursday

Today I’m thankful that the parks are re-opened on a limited basis. Basically the trails and the off-leash dog park are open.

I’m not going to lie, I was getting down right pissed off seeing other peoples nature walks and pictures. All I wanted was to take a walk in the park near our house, and get off the sidewalks with cars driving past all the time. But, I am a total rule follower so I was not about to walk through the park even though others were doing so every time I drove past. Sky was getting pretty cranky as well, why are others enjoying the park/outdoors when we can’t? That’s a hard one to explain to an 8 year old.

If she rolls I can walk as fast as I want, it’s a win win!

So, when the Lakewood Parks opened back up you bet Sky and I headed to the one closest to us for a nice like walk/roll through the park.

Guys I felt so much better after that. I needed some time in a natural green space. My heart was happier and I felt much more calm. I will never take a walk through the park for granted again. Having park access will hold me over until we can go camping again…I hope. šŸ™‚

What are you thankful for?
