I am in awe of the way other people are living. I long for a more simple way of living, but admittedly fall into a trap of the fast paced, too busy attitude of the island of which I live on. Reading other woman's blogs make me want to change for the better. I am encouraged to shut off the TV more, read more to the kids and maybe even yell a little less. I plan on embracing the rest of the days of summer and encourage the kids that even though the good weather will all too soon come to an end, our good times will not. However, trite it might be, these times go by so quick, so we must enjoy our children as much as we can and be there to pour into them everything we possibly can. These are the days.
