Our wonderful wishcast leader Jamie has asked us this morning...What do we wish to savour? Ok...am thinking food off the top of my head..but I think what I really want to savour is the summer.
Call me crazy but honestly summer is my least favorite time of the year. I think alot of this has to do with the fact that I lived in Scottsdale, AZ for years. Although I really loved the place, I am a cold weather girl at heart. I love the beauty of the desert and there is amazing beauty there, just not the heat. I love sunshine too..just not in such huge doses. So living up here in the Pacific NorthWest is just right for me...mostly. I tend to spend this time of the year looking longingly towards the Fall, which is my very favorite time of the year.
I long to enjoy the summers of my youth, filled with fun and relaxation. I want to have a different mindset this summer..to savour it, eat it up with a ice cold spoon & soak in the sunshine. I want to give myself permission to let go of all the stress, the housework, the job and take advantage of the several hours of sunshine after my school kiddos go home! I want to devour delicious summer books and drink ice cold ice tea till I pop. I want to play with my kids with abandon, have water fights and play in the mud. I want to try and find the fun in summer again.
I start a vacation this Saturday, the first one in many years that was longer than 4 days, I figure (thank you Jamie for the reminder) this would be a good time to start savouring summer again. So my wish today is to enjoy summer again!! Namaste, Sarah
