I’ve always loved spring because it’s the time I get to watch my favorite flowers bloom. But let’s get real, I’m obsessed with summer.
When it’s here, I’m the happiest. When it’s not, it’s all I can think about. You see? Obsessed. Some may like to bundle up and lug their oversized coats around, but not me! Being warm, bronze, emotionally lifted and, if I’m honest, scantily dressed, is all I’m after.
Now that we’re in August, I know I have to make the most of the blazing sun before it begins to linger. After all, like a good friend once said: “I hate being cold. Second to being hungry.”
***I post today in reflection as it’s the anniversary of my mother’s passing. Her entire being warms my heart more than any equatorial sun ever could.
