These Are The Glory Days

I'm a summer girl-at-heart, born and bred for flip flops and popsicles and all-things-garden.
As a Mom, it gets harder, some days, to delight in these days. They aren't exactly as restful as they were back then.

But I'm still that girl, still exactly the girl I was designed to be.
The magic is still here, just waiting to be found.

Today, I'm over at (in)courage talking about everything I love about summer and the ways it'll always be just what I need.  Join me.


  1. Oh yes! I hear your heart, for I too am a summer girl. It never dawned on me, that I was born for summer-late June in the hot California sunshine. Maybe that's why I feel the constant pull of the summer, wanting it the way of my childhood, and having to do all of the mom things, all of the time. Thank you for reminding me. Thank you for pushing me off the high dive, to plunge into all the good things God lays out.

  2. This is such a great post. I'm stuck at 'cold winter nights around the wood-burning stove, the heavy army-issue blanket nailed to the archway to keep the heat from drifting past us. ' because that's how we live here in winter!
