In June, Summer Break greets us with a warm hug of morning sunshine and the promise that anything is possible. With three whole months outstretched in front of us, our to do lists run the gamut from summer camp to the pool to a trip to Grandma's beach house to afternoon naps.
As summer saunters on deep into July, bare feet, bbq's, sandy swimsuits, and the companionship of the sun's dimmed glow lingering late into the evening like a treasured friend staying for one more glass of wine come together to give us a much needed break after the harried schedule of the school year.
Summer is a time to take a break from the general routine and general business of life. And while we, as adults, can't completely let go, we can and should at least slow down, take in life, and take time to recharge, reflect, and collect ourselves for what we all know will inevitably come again.
As summer winds down and registration day has come and gone and the fleet of big yellow busses take over the streets, it's hard not to feel like summer flew by. Try not to look back and feel like you didn't accomplish all you set out to do on that first summer morning in June. Take a moment to reflect on the good things about your summer. Did your kids have fun? Did you relax a little? Maybe there's a little pearl of wisdom you picked up, a nugget of inspiration perhaps. Something to feed your restless soul until next summer when, once again, anything is possible.
