goodbye summer

"Ah, when to the heart of man

Was it ever less than a treason

To go with the drift of things,

To yield with a grace to reason,

And bow and accept the end

Of a love or a season?

-from "Reluctance" by Robert Frost

Autumn is my favorite season, hands down, but this past summer has been quite memorable.

Nothing amazing happened. Just lots of little things--lots of sweet memories all wrapped up into one memorable season.

We vacationed, camped in the backyard, swam, roasted marshmallows, barbecued, rode bikes, planted a garden and read lots of books.

But I'll miss little bare toes running around in the green grass.

I'll miss walks out to the garden to cut a few flowers.

I'll miss the smell of summer air.

I'll miss sitting on the swing out back, kids climbing all over me.

goodbye, summer...

It's nice for you to have great summer memories after being snowed in quite a bit last winter. Hope your fall is just as lovely as your summer.

Thank you for your thoughtful words and kindness in prayer. I truly appreciate it!

I love those flowers--are they from your garden? Beautiful!

I was just thinking about the comment you left me about the "bad nurse" leaving our room so frequently. . .I know. . .it still amazes me when I think about it!
