~~ Seriously lazy days.
~~ Staying up late and sleeping in (heavenly!).
~~ Very little schedule.
~~ Only getting out of my pj’s when I feel like it.
~~ Friends from near and far.
~~ Beautiful days at the pool.
~~ My skin having some color.
~~ Bare feet (which means fewer socks to fold and put away).
~~ Reading a few extra books.
~~ God’s amazing creation which is so, so green.
~~ Quick and easy meals.
~~ More daylight hours.
~~ Carefree children.
~~ Growing babies.
~~ Sun-bleached hair.
~~ Visiting new places and making new friends.
~~ Not having to think about lesson plans and grades.
~~ The laundry piled sky high–because I’m too lazy to do it most days.
~~ An unusually messy house–because it can wait.
~~ Cuddles on the sofa.
~~ Rainy afternoons. I LOVE the rain.
~~ Humidity (I know, I’m weird).
~~ Rainbows–His promise.
~~ Time out of the house.
~~ A weekend away to look forward to.
~~ Shorts and tees.
~~ Watching my children make memories together.
~~ Dreaming, pondering, praying.
~~ A heart of expectation.
God is so good.
And I am so thankful for a time of rest.
