City of North Liberty: It's going to be good

TO DOs
☑ Explore June's community activities 
☑ Get ready for outdoor pool season
☑ Help out at Summer Lunch & Fun
☑ Get a membership to save on the rec center and pool
☑ Volunteer for Blues & BBQ

As I write this, it's a warm and sunny day, which brings me joy and makes it easy to feel good about my neighbors and smile as families waddle through the park or couples walk their incredibly furry dogs down the block.

I'm not always this way, and sometimes it can be hard to feel warmth towards people. A jerk noses in front of you in the school drop-off line. You catch some snarky blowback at the grocery store. There's some nagging from your partner the moment you get home. But when I feel joy, it's easier to offer these folks grace and set aside my occasional petty feelings of resentment or annoyance.

This weekend, we're celebrating love, which seems like a pretty good thing to celebrate. And we'll do a lot more celebrating of community and getting chances to be joyful as we head towards more sunny days.

[insert contented sigh here]

It's going to be a great summer.
