ode to this summer (and a few other links)

I love the rhythm and newness I feel at the beginning of a school year - even though I am not a traditional teacher any more. August is a much more natural time for me to make plans and goals. It's much better than January 1st.
August comes after a summer of sleeping in and staying up late. After grilling out and the smell of fresh cut grass. After hiding out in the air conditioned house. After trying to get to the pool a few times. It is after all of this type of living that I am able to appreciate a new start.

So dear July, stretch out a little longer this year. Even though you are hot and humid, you and your friend June have been good to me this year. One year of nursing school down and one just ahead for this wife of a nursing student. I am thankful for you, sweet summer.

In honor of a lovely summer week, here are a few posts I found encouraging or interesting:

And please pray that sweet baby Caleb would be given a miracle heart this weekend.


  1. I'm with you. July, stick around, slow it down! No need to rush by!

  2. Glad you are enjoying the summer- It's a sweet time :)


Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with me.
