Little Things Tue, Jul 16, 2019
To be entirely fair I’ve had some truly awesome summers. From spending whole days on the beach in southern California to midnight light-saber battles with my siblings; I gotta say summer is that season that never disappoints for great memories. But I think the absolute best was last summer. My sister had randomly asked me if I wanted to join her and her family at the lake. I thought it was a great idea because I was upset. I don’t remember why I was feeling down, but I welcomed the break. We meet up at Safeway got some Starbucks and essentials; then we were off. She had the best spot picked out and our children had a blast. Water was the right temperature and we were thoroughly engrossed in the silly conversations that were had. I can’t put my finger on why this was the best summer memory. It might have been because I had gotten a good amount of sun and the best tan of my life, or it could have been because my children had the best time running around the shallow water in their life vest, It could have even been the easy conversation flowing because at that moment in time; for those few hours all that mattered was the people, the laughs, and the water.
Basically, remember rule 32#: Enjoy the little things.
