As I sit and watch the lightning, I reflect on the summer

As I sit and watch the lightning, I reflect on the summer that has almost passed. It seems like a couple weeks ago that we were opening the pool with plenty of family time ahead. Since then we have enjoyed cook outs with friends, relaxing mornings on the deck with coffee, and hours of family swim time. But how fast the time flies. The kids went back to school this week and in less than two years from now one of them will be starting high school. It’s crazy how fast the world turns. How little regard it has for us and the time that we cherish so much. It seems impossible to hang on to these good moments and just as impossible to get the bad times to leave. We are blessed as a family and I thank God for all the moments.
