Taking Time To Enjoy
No Matter Where We Are...
As the blog says, a "slice of life from Vermont"... This was a regular day today--in every way except that it is truly extraordinary.
Today kids played outside. Today adults worked. Then we watched an all-stars softball game. The kids ate hot dogs and slushees. The friends wanted to go swimming--and so did the dogs--so we all jumped into our own pond. Finally, as the sun was truly setting (and the mosquitos were really biting), we came home to a feast of hamburgers and chips, followed by ice cream treats.
But today I remembered to appreciate it--all of it: the friendship of the kids and the adults, the joy of the long days of sunlight, the feeling of satisfaction when you can say "yes" to a child's hope of frolicking in water, the laughter that bubbles up when you see the dogs playing with the kids in the pond.
I hope that your vacation time in Vermont leave you with all of this, too! (And if you are not here, I hope that your day held some extraordinary ordinary moments, too!)
