Sometimes we read too much Dr. Seuss, it's true. I found myself going through my list of thanks rhythmically today, so I thought I would force you to endure a glimpse into my mind. A short Ode to Summer that I put together in approximately ten minutes........
|New trick = "winking"|
Slip n' slides and sidewalk chalk.
Laundry helpers, kitchen cooks.
A fresh batch of summer books
Pointing up at zooming jets.
Watching lots of Wonder Pets.
Pull a weed, pick a flower,
Drive-through Sonic Happy Hour.
Learning how to do our chores,
|Side-effect of Summer = falling asleep anywhere and everywhere.|
Squeeze some ketchup on your fries,
Make some yummy, muddy pies.
Made-up games, scrunchy faces,
Travel to some different places.
August is coming, and it's a bummer.
No more bare feet, no more summer.
|"Scrunchy Face" pushing around only the bare essentials. Flashlight, Microphone, etc.|
"Gratitude for the seemingly insignificant—a seed—this plants the giant miracle."
