Thankfully I have neighbors to help and the boys are old enough to spend some time alone with rules to follow.
Unfortunately, I only got to go up once over the weekend. It was the first weekend I had been disconnected from the computer and cell phone since I don’t know when.
My sister-in-law and her kids had made the trip up from IL. She and I have never really gotten to spend a lot of time together.
So, while our kids were playing with each other, we took the canoe out to the lake and headed to the reeds. We were searching for the “secret lake” that we’d heard about.
Becky and I had time to talk and share and spend some wonderful time together as sisters. I wish we would’ve had a camera to take photos of our adventure!
We never made it to the secret lake because the reeds just kept going on and on. We’d come around another bend and NOTHING! So we turned around and headed back.
Aside from our chit chat it was so calm and peaceful. We weren’t in a hurry. The kids were with their grandparents and we were taking in the serene setting. We literally stopped rowing at the same time to just take it all in. Peaceful and tranquil.
Quiet moments with no requirements is what I would call sweetness in life for this single mom! That’s something I rarely get to enjoy. I need to make more time for them, that’s for sure!
Do you have a moment from summer that made you stop to savor the sweetness of life? If so, I’d love to hear about it.
