Summers are so short and we wait so long to enjoy them. Then, in the blink of a moment they are disappearing before our eyes. Then I remember that is the way of all things (except maybe cloudy winters). Relationships come to us like a sunny day, warm and exciting, full of adventure and the promise of blossoming romance, and then one day, like the withering of the plants in fall, they start waning. I know better than to resist change, as change is a part of every aspect of life. Kids grow up and leave, parents leave us, we grow older and life is in constant motion. Each day I am working to trust the process, knowing that where I am is not where I may be, but just a temporary landing spot that requires the same trust and acceptance of the moment.
