It’s been an interesting summer, one that is both similar to ones in the past and yet very different as well. Am I sad to see it go? Not really. It was a beautiful time and it brought with it many new challenges as well as times of rest that were sorely needed, but it is time to move forward once more.
So this week, I am grateful for both the things that have happened through this last summer as well as the things that only started happening once the summer break was over, which include the following:
Summer school with my niece is over, just in time for regular school.
Seeing the sky after a furious summer storm that included a huge amount of hale.
Learning how to squeeze on a twin mattress with a large dog during thunder storms.
Eagerly waiting for the kids to get home from school.
These are only a few things that have gone by and I’m sure you’ve noticed a large amount of them have our new dog Sissy in them. We only got her this last summer as well even though we’ve known her for a long time. She and the cats have slowly been learning to get along, another thing I’m grateful for.
I hope that this next year is as wonderful as the last one has been.
