Thinking of less complicated days… THIS was my Sunday just a few short weeks ago at the #mardipaws2020 MardiPaws 2020 parade – @mardipawspresents -in my home town of Covington, Louisiana. A time when it wasn’t so scary to shake an elderly person’s hand so that they could let you know how proud of you they are… Getting to speak to my community standing in the street with a microphone talking to you all as my parents and family stood in the stands and on the street clapping, smiling, supporting and cheering me on was beyond special and I cherish the moment. The connection to home, that connection to community has stuck with me. It’s definitely the last time I’ve seen a group of people that happy together sharing an experience. Hopefully it’s not too far away that we get to come together again in large crowds smiling and happy people. We will get back to living, to thriving but now with a much greater appreciation for fresh air, a friendly conversation and health. Not just for ourselves but for our world. Make no mistake, we are at war with a viral enemy. We are united. We’re all on the same side. For once. Imagine if we felt this caring all of the time… Now it’s time to practice social distancing and be prudent with our activities to STOP the spread of this virus. I can’t wait to see you the other side- until then, we have this technology. Spread kindness, compassion and good energy. People need it. Thanks to Mayor Mark Johnson, everyone at the City of Covington, and all the participants and sponsors who went out of their way to make this such a special day for me and all the parade volunteers. A special thank you to the mastermind of it all, Denise Gutnisky for creating such special times for people to share. Your heart is boundless…
