Big thanks to Kim, Dawn, Angie, Kat, and Janna who dropped by while I was on vacation last week! I knew that I was leaving The Velvet Room in good hands with these talented women holding down the fort!
Why is it that it takes so much work to get ready to go on vacation and so much time to get caught up with everything when we return? I think there should be some kind of vacation grace period – just a few extra days tacked on to the beginning and the end to provide time to handle these things.
So, my body went back to work this morning, but my mind was still back with the family in Canada. As I watched my grandchildren experience summer last week, I couldn’t help but be struck by the wonder of the circle of life. I recalled my own endless childhood summers, the summers when my children were young, and now these precious days seeing it all again through the eyes of Jaxon and Makiya.
The delight of enjoying a simple ice cream cone…..
Learning to ride a new tricycle…..
The swimming pool on a hot afternoon…..
Drinking cold water out of a hose…
And my favorite….Grandma love….
