Me thinks we are coming to the end of these COVID-19 times. It has been a challenge for everyone, including us dragons!  I feel the Northwind clearing the air. A lot has been learned, especially the importance of a supportive family, kind neighbors, and a caring community. That has been true from the “get-go”, but the rush of daily life made it hard to find time to nurture family, be neighborly, or even active in our community. Through the ups and downs of COVID-19, it seems like a lot of folks are returning to the values of family, neighbors, and community. Yay!

As we move into July, hold fast to your children, they need you. Listen to your children, they need their voices heard. Encourage and comfort them. Spend time each day building memories and values that they will need to survive and thrive in an unknown future. Give the gift of family by sharing stories of family past and hopes for the future. Talk about the importance of being grateful, respectful, kind, and helping others. If we honor these things, me thinks all will go well.

~ Fil, the friendly Dragon
