It’s almost the middle of August and I am still waiting for summer. The sky is overcast every morning and it seems to take hours for the sun to appear. They say it is one of the coolest summers that anyone can remember around here. I miss the heat..probably because I grew up in a warmer climate but also because I love the feeling of the summer season. Summer reminds me of being a child..without school..time to read a book..ride a bike..go to the beach..time to just be.
It’s still summer even without the heat. Let’s capture that feeling while we can. Admittedly it is different for adults.Everything does not just stop because it is summer. We still have jobs, responsibilities, and not as much free time as we would like. We still need summer. Time to rest..to reflect..to enjoy..to move more slowly. Think about what summer means to you..find a way to make that happen. Don’t let summer pass into fall without a few golden moments that remind you of your childhood. Life is too short to miss even one summer. Take a walk..eat ice cream..water your plants..play with a child.. collect sea shells..watch a sunset. Find time.
