It Feels Like Summer

"Hurry is a pace of life that is seldom conducive to godliness, to relationships, to anything that ultimately matters to us."
                                                                       -Nancy Leigh DeMoss
I'm trying to keep the gist of this quote in mind this Memorial Day weekend before the housework, cooking and constant training and correction that is part of daily life as a mom turn me into a nagging, frantic mess. I'm reminding myself to slow down and enjoy the sights, smells and tastes of summer.

Like the scent of sunscreen on Mattie's skin while we snuggle. 

The feel of the sun as we play in the water and observe flowers, trees, birds and ladybugs while dodging wasps, yellow jackets and mosquitoes.

Eating watermelon, strawberries, roasted corn and firing up the grill for steaks and hot dogs.

Letting Jack spray everyone and everything in sight while washing cars.

Enjoying an impromptu lunch with a friend that also invites us to spend an impromptu afternoon at the pool.

Letting these long days of lounging quiet my soul and draw us closer together.

Here's to the carefree nostalgia summer brings!
