School! Already?

Summer sighs. So do I. School begins. Already? Yes, ready or not.
Have I done everything I could with the circumstances I've had to make this summer memorable and fun? I've tried, oh yes I've tried. Today is a new day. A day to celebrate and make more memories. I won't look back and feel the pull of regret. I've done my best. I won't look to tomorrow and feel the fear of uncertainty. I will embrace today. I will find today's joy!

Have a wonderful day too!
Love, Rachel

Rachel, I feel so much like this. I hope I hope we did enough fun things together before school actually starts. I'm not ready!!! I am sending all 4 kids to public school this year. I'm sad, but happy. I'm going to miss them so much, but relieved to know they will have some structure, dead-lines and balance. I too want to find joy in this moment. Bless you sweetie. Kathi

That is a great way of looking at life...Rachel! It is so easy to look behind or ahead and not experience "today"! Danny and I have been talking alot about that lately. Have fun finding joy today! :)

School starts Monday here!!! I am sad to see them go back. I know they will have fun and meet new friends, but I sure will miss them

Our's started last week. It was tough for a few days. I was not ready for summer to be over.

Hope your day was good!

Bravely, even with trembling, reach our hand to God's each morning, noon and night, He leads us safely through wherever our paths lead.
Have a wonderful first day of the rest of your life.
Love you, Donnie
