The weather is hot
Time spent with friends refreshing
Enjoy His blessings
This has been a good summer for me. I have a summer job. I was invited to a Fourth of July party for the first time in years. I saw my aunt and two of my cousins three days last week at a neighborhood festival. ( Three generations of women in my family singing "Pour Some Sugar on Me" and "Talk Dirty to Me" in the bleachers at the top of their lungs. Can it get any better than that here on this Earth?) Next week another cousin is having a barbecue, then the next another cousin her graduation party, then the next day some friends are barbecuing. I haven't had such a great summer in years.
I suppose I could complain about some things if I wanted to, I suppose. The weather has been hot and humid. The school I teach summer school at isn't air conditioned. It rained late in the afternoon on July 4. My feet hurt walking to the part where the festival was.... I haven't had a chance to go swimming yet because I've been busy.
But none of those things really mattered compared with the joy of teaching again, the laughter of friends, the voices of people I love raised in songs.... It's been awesome! I am amazed by how much I have been blessed this summer!
