Complain of the heat and humidity,
Complain about the bugs?
Or, plan to do something special,
Give encouragement and hugs.
Stew about the long distance driving,
the bus, the train, the plane?
Gripe about the unexpected,
or relinquish stress and stay sane.
The choosing is up to me;
Anticipate, enjoy, remember,
I’ll make it fun, certainly.
