The facebook status updates remind me...and the buses driving by show proof.
And just like that, another summer draws to a close.
And some have yet to experience this "school stage" of life for their wee ones.
I'm not sure where I am, just yet.
I'm kind of loving the crisp, cool mornings and evenings.
I'm kind of ready for more structure and organized rhythm to our days.
But, I really kind of hate change...
And this year marks a new chapter for many of my friends, so that means life will look differently than it does right now.
But different isn't bad. It's just...different.
We'll live outside on the sunny days.
We'll make milkshakes and smoothies for our lunches.
We'll have a final few playdates.
And we'll drink blueberry soda...because that's what we do in the summer.
We'll swing and we'll read outside...and we'll go to camp for "one last time."
(~Margaret Lee Runbeck~)
And since I can't do a thing about stopping time or pausing life or putting my kids' ages on hold for just a little bit longer...I might as well enjoy the journey, see the beauty, and find the joy.
After all, it is "the joy of the small that makes life large." ~ Ann Voskamp
May you find joy this weekend, friends!
May we all slow and see the sacred in the chaos.
And may we all find joy in the journey...
