Happy Summer!

It is summer and I don't want to miss a single sunny day, warm night under the stars, fresh raspberries and peaches, salmon on the grill, or chocolate ice cream. I am still reeling (can you BELIEVE it!!??) when I remember that we just sold a book to a national publisher. I have finished summer quarter and am now writing grants and preparing for presentations this summer and early fall. But this darling boy reminds me to live in the moment. I don't want these precious warm months to slip away. It is time to replenish. Soon enough it will be rainy and dark at 6:00. Fall quarter will begin, students will return, and editing of the book will be on-going. Find a moment to enjoy these beloved summer months. Look into these eyes. Is this not the secret to happiness?

Well said. As I get older, I try to remember to live in the moment and to be grateful for my many many blessings, both large and small. Among those are sunny summer days, good health, and the love of family and friends!!

Life has a tendency to get in the way, to rush us through so that the days blur together and we can't discern one from the next. You've reminded me that I do need to stop. Walk away from the computer. Savor my children who soon will no longer be children. Cherish moments with my hard working husband. And just be.

I know! I was thinking all of this as I was playing outside with my little boy yesterday! He was so fascinated with the simplest things he found outside- I wished I could freeze that time for a little bit!
