Summertime, and the Living is Easy....

It's summer, and I am beyond thrilled.

For the first time in many many summers, I looked forward to summer with nothing but joy. I get to see my children more, there will be no Board meetings, no one to wake up, no one's schedule to set my watch by, warmth, open doors and windows...

It hasn't always been this way. I have spent most my parenting years as a single mother, and this has its joys and its challenges. But this year, it is actually more joys than challenges.

So, on this Solstice eve, when the weather is graceful, when the wind is playful, when my children blissfully ignore my existence, I give thanks.

I give thanks for the joy I am feeling, for the abundance that has moved me through survival mode, for fulfilling work, for extended family far and near, for a wonderful friend that "gets" me, for baby bunnies.... you get the picture.

Blessed Solstice every one!

Thanks, Desmal.
