Gratitude Day 51 – Summer is Here!

 

Sun., May 27, 201

Kids at Mirror Lake
Hubby and our three youngest grandkids: Dylan, Ellie and Waylan

Proverbs 14:30 – A relaxed attitude lengthens a man’s life; jealousy rots it away.

While the calendar still says “May,” today in Wisconsin, it felt as if summer arrived. While in the car Saturday afternoon, the temperature registered at 92 degrees Fahrenheit. It is hard to image that a short six weeks ago, many inches of snow dotted our landscape.

Hubby Rick and I took full advantage of the beautiful weather. We had our youngest three grandchildren for the day. And we did everything summer. Jumping on the trampoline. Picnic in the park. (Yes, we cheated and picked up food at Culver’s, a local take-out restaurant.) Swam in the water. Played in the sand. Learned about various wild animal tracks. Stopped for ice cream. Basically, we checked off most of the items we would put on a “great summer day” list. Only downside? Because we have had lots of rain in May, the mosquitos are persistent. We kept sun screen and bug spray nearby all day.

The last two days, Rick and I have spent working and playing together. It has been great! Maybe what I needed to appreciate all that I have in my life.

We all need space in which we step back from our daily lives and rediscover what makes us tick and what is so important to us. I have been able to do this the last two days.

For this, I am grateful.

Lord God – thanks for a couple days of relaxation in which I have uncovered just a bit of my mojo again. I pray that my relaxed attitude of today can sustain me for days ahead. Amen.

Blessings –

Dianne
