Where Did the Summer Go?

Y’all!! Is it just me or was this like the shortest summer ever??

Tomorrow is the first day of school and I feel like I just was released for the summer. While I am excited to see all of my new students, I don’t think I am quite ready to return to the daily grind. Between vacations, projects around the house and just spending time with my family, I feel like we were constantly busy. I think that is a lot of the reason why the summer seemed to go so fast.

As I watch my daughter grow now, more than ever, I want time to just slow down. She is getting bigger every day and gaining so much independence. I love to watch her little wheels spinning as she tries to figure out a problem. It really makes me more aware of the image that I am portraying to her.

I hope that I am someone that she aspires to be like.

I hope that I am someone she admires.

I hope that I am someone she is proud to call her Mom.

All of this makes me want to just take a step back and just enjoy life in the moment. We are only promised today so why not make the best of every possible situation. While I do wish that I was still home with Vivi enjoying my summer vacation, I am going to make the time that we do have together special. It is so easy to get caught up in the business of life that we are not really out living our lives.

The laundry can wait for another day. Instead I am going to get outside and watch my daughter play. I don’t want to have any regrets and I don’t want to miss out on any moments. I may be going back to work but I am going to put forth an effort to really be present with my family. No matter what your job is, your family should be your main focus. If you always put them first and enjoy every minute, when next summer rolls around, maybe it won’t seem to have flown by so fast.
