When I was a child I loved summer! Endless carefree days walking barefoot walking on the clover lawn full of honey bees. Whenever I stepped on one I would pull out the stinger and go on my way. Bike rides with my friends and siblings filled our days. The key to our roller skates was always nearby to grab and skate the sidewalks that surrounded our neighborhood.
Our male cardinal is wondering why I don't like summer anymore. I've wondered the same! Looking outside where the heat and humidity is soaring keeps this gal inside instead of where I wish I could be. Early morning walks give me a chance to be outdoors for a little while and are enjoyed.
Just like the days of when I was young, I love going to the beach. Our family beach week bought us all together recently. Sitting under an umbrella in a beach chair is one of my greatest joys! Being with our loved ones reminds me of how truly blessed we are. Spending these days together, laughing, beach walking, and sharing meals make it all worth our efforts to be together. Our grands are now practically grown. Our youngest is a senior in high school this year, our middle a sophomore in college and our oldest grand lives with us as he finishes his education. My goodness how can time be passing so quickly.
It reminds me of the life of a butterfly!
I don't wish to not enjoy one day of this precious life.
As our daughter and son-in-law left the beach early on our last day, I was treated to a sight that thrilled me! It's really not hard to find joy as it is all around me!
