Summer is winding down here in the Inland Northwest.

The evenings seem cooler these days, families taking a walk with the dogs or grandkids, people take time to chat while you water the lawn. I live in an ideal location. We have several lakes in the area for fishing, boating, jogging beside the lake, there are so many trails and hiking paths  to choose. 

Right now there are so many festivals and outdoor concerts in the area to attend, so much to see and do in the summer. Soon, the towns will thin out, the tourists will go home  the farmer’s market will close and we will look forward to another season. Some don’t want summer to end. I enjoy summer but like the fall better. Cooler nights, long sleeves again, and the coffee tastes better with a nip in the air. 

I look back with fondness raising my young son alone after my husband died from his disease. Levi and I had fun at the public pool, Silver Wood Theme park. the fair, fishing with grandma and grandpa. We endured many hardships and difficulties, but we survived them all I would not trade my life for anything. Sometimes life throws you a curve ball you didn’t see coming. This was my case. My son Levi died in a tragic car accident in July 2007. my life was forever changed in a moment. With God’s grace and the love and support of family and friends, I have the strength to carry on the rest of my life. We never know what tomorrow will bring or if we even have tomorrow. take the time to hug you child close tonight, tell them you are proud of them,tell them how much you love them nd you are glad they are in your life. one day will come when they go to college, or marry, or set off with some friends as my son did on sunny sunday morning, and by that evening,both our lives were changed forever. Have the rest of a blessed summer.
