I will always remember where I was when the news first broke about coronavirus escalating from a small outbreak in China to a worldwide pandemic. I had just disembarked from the Disney Dream cruise ship in Port Canaveral and my telephone was buzzing with texts and emails from my travel clients.

Do we ever wonder how we came to live in this quaint town situated in the beautiful and verdant hills of North Texas? This place where we are graced each day as we drive along the gently flowing and sparkling waters of Lake Granbury. Do we take time to watch as the sun shines upon the waters causing flickers of light to jump and pop as if they are dancing to Beethoven’s 5th? Have we waited beside the river hoping to see a large fish crash through the top of the water seeking the plethora of bugs floating and moving on top of the glistening waves? Do we take time to view the grandeur before our eyes in the trees and flowers that move and sway when kissed by the early morning breeze? Do we take time to really see the people we meet on our journey through life? Do we brighten their day with a smile and a kind word?
