Freedom, Joy, and Summertime
The smell of barbeque is in the air. Your friends are on their way over with a cooler full of tasty warm-weather treats. The sun is out, and it’s calling you like a beacon. It’s time to answer. Put away the to-do list, put away your phone, put on your swimsuit, and get outside. It’s time for summertime joy.
July is the perfect time for summer traditions. Every moment looks like a perfect postcard sent from the most wonderful vacation. This is the time of year when hotdogs and Popsicles are the perfect meal. When the kids run ecstatically around the yard waving sparklers and playing tag. When you get to float on your back, free and relaxed, on water that’s glinting like Swarovski crystals. When kisses “hello” taste like watermelon.
Revel in summer, because this is the time when living with your whole heart comes almost automatically. The tension in your shoulders melts away to a sense of carefree ease. Be grateful for every freedom your great nation affords you, for every second of fun and play.
Go ahead-jump in! Here’s to a season full of sun, sparkle and whole-hearted living!
