"I Miss You, Borrego"
Last updated 5/22/2020 at 11:32am
I miss seeing your smiling faces behind the masks; I miss the reassuring pats on the shoulder and the hugs of gratitude for your thoughtfulness and generosity; I miss the greetings at the Post Office and the Circle and the other ‘Hot Spots’ around town; I miss the chatter of the children when they enter the cafeteria in the morning; I miss the little one who offers her half eaten cookie when she comes in for breakfast; I miss the laughter and the insightful comments overheard at the middle and high schools when you didn’t know I was listening.
If there’s a silver lining to the circumstances we’re in, it’s the enhanced opportunities to witness how incredibly incredible the folks of Borrego are: from the neighbor picking up meals for three to four families; to the many unsung heroes donating time, supplies and labor to help all of us get through the another day.
So until the masks come off and Social Distancing is a distant memory, know that you are missed and loved and cherished more than ever.
