Summer is nice for many reasons. One reason is a given....NO SCHOOL!!!!! I love my job, but as all teachers will agree, we need our down time. It is healthier for us and for sure healthier for the kids. Just kidding. Another reason I love summer is it is a good time for visiting and catching up with friends. Last week was college orientation and several good friends brought their kids to town. Kiesha and Nancy N. came over one evening and we went to supper at Manna. We had lots and lots of laughs. Kiesha spent the night, which made the night even better. Next we had Nancy S. and Seth. They too came and stayed at the Bailey Bed and Breakfast. This made the week even better. I really did enjoy my time with Nancy. It was funny seeing her competitive nature surface. She had Randal in the backyard with his new golf toy, which helps correct your golf swing. In a few minutes, she became addicted and yearned for the perfect swing. That's Nancy.
This week I was blessed with another friend visit. This time it was my friend Tanya. She took Ashley and I to lunch in celebration of Ashley's graduation. She is so sweet and it was nice to see her sweet smile. Tanya and I used to walk almost every day. I miss those long walks and our long talks. I am excited because it looks like another friend get together is in the make for the weekend with several of the same friends and others. I also have plans with some new friends next week too.
When I think often of these above mentioned friends and others, both old and new that I hold dear to my heart, I think of this verse from Philippians, "I thank my God everytime I remember you!" Again, summer is great!
