Good morning. Summer is nearing an end, some of the schools here are already back in session and to many that signals the end of summer, so my question to you is how is your summer? What have you been doing? Have you been on any adventures? Road trips? Have you walked at the beach or hiked in the mountains? Have you been lucky enough to spend time with your family and friends? Did you grow a garden? Pick peaches? How many books did you read? Did you dance in the rain? Or catch some fireflies?
I have mentioned this before but over the last few years I am making a concerted effort to live in the present and enjoy each and every season in my life. Although summer is not my favorite season there are many things I enjoy about it and those are the things I have been doing this summer. In fact I wrote a bucket list at the beginning of summer and so far I have ticked off all of the things on my list.
I have been on several trips to Santa Fe New Mexico, Kansas City, Missouri, and the Eastern Shore of Virginia and Maryland. I have read stacks of books while sitting almost every afternoon on my front porch with a lemonade or a cocktail. My mom and my niece came for a week and I took the time to enjoy a “staycation”. I walked in the sand, swam in the ocean, watched seagulls fly and dolphins frolic. I’ve eaten my pounds of peaches and cherries, corn on the cob and BBQ. I have enjoyed sunrises and sunsets, watched baby birds fly from their nests and fireflies illuminate the night.
To many these may seem like small and insignificant things but life is made of many small moments and my friends these is still time to get out there and enjoy them!
Have a great day!
