May your weekend be filled with more hellos than goodbyes, more sweet than bitter, and more celebration than grief. May you find a friend to share a milkshake with, or at least one to sit beside while you drink the whole thing. Let the popsicle juice leave streaks down their arms and try not to be so serious. While you aim the garden hose at their summer-tanned limbs, laugh as much as you can. Listen even more. Surprise them with your carefree grace. Enjoy your weekend, friends.
