Just What I Needed

Where has the week gone? Where has the month gone for that matter? Sometimes I feel like there just aren't enough hours in the day,  weeks in a month, or months in a year. Days like we've had this past week that are full of heat and a hint of the smells of summertime. Days that are warm enough to dress the little ones in bubble rompers and sandals, but still cool enough at night to dress them in warm jammies. I love days like these. They remind me of moments from my childhood. Good memories of longer days and falling asleep when it's still light out. Memories of long days outside, playing in the sprinklers. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Playing in the pool until my brother and I had turned into little raisins and our eyes saw halos around every light. I'm reminded of delicious meals prepared by loving hands of grandmas, great grandmas, aunts and my mother. All bustling around the kitchen laughing and talking. Then dessert. Oh how I miss those family dinners. They were filled with so much happiness. So much laughter. Yes days like these bring back such yummy & happy memories. Days like these make me wish time would slow down, just a little.

I needed those memories this week.

Hope everyone has a weekend filled with sweetness.

Summie- Thanks so much for your prayers, dear friend! I am feeling so much better today.:) I was thinking I would be sick forever. 2 months is tooooo long! Thanks for caring- I absolutely adore you! Lori

i so agree. sometimes i wish i could stop everything and be a kid again. grass stained feet, no body image worries running around in a bathing suit, big appetite from running around all day in the sun. it's all good stuff isn't it? we got the sprinkler out yesterday though, and i must say, i was right in it too.

felt good.

Summer, I hope you are doing well. I so relate to not having enough hours in the day! It sounds like your girl's room is coming along. I can't wait to see the finished product. Have a great week and may the Lord bless you with an extra hour or two here and there. Amy
