There is just something wonderful about the return of warm weather after a few months of cold. We appreciate things like taking walks, going for bike rides, playing outside after dinner until bedtime and laying on our backs on the sidewalk, looking up at the stars. If there was never this season of cold to make me long for the warm, would I appreciate it? And these 3 little boys we're blessed with, they are constant reminders to slow down and appreciate it. They rarely sense any of the urgency about doing daily tasks. They notice things and stop to enjoy them. I love that about them!
