The sun was out in force Saturday and Sunday. Then it left so the rain could visit us Monday and Tuesday. Now it is Wednesday and the sun it back. I wish he would stay, this bright, shiny friend of mine, but, alas, he is a fickle creature. Here today, gone tomorrow. How much more can my emotions take before my heart is broken?
The last few years I have not spent as much time outside as I had planned to once summer rolled around. This year I’ll try the same goal. I cannot remember how productive staying inside has been in the past, but if it was I can always do it again come winter. For now I pledge to enjoy the warmth and the beauty of nature.
As Warren Barfield wrote, I’ll “soak it up, every little bit I get/Enjoy all my days until all my days end”
