I am buoyed by family, friends and my sweet dog Rex. We spent quality time together this weekend doing all things important: praying, walking, eating, swimming and laughing. As the rain was pelting the roof of the camper, I lay in bed with Rex this morning undeniably cozy. You know those mornings when you really do not want to get out of bed and spoil the coziness of the moment? It was one of those mornings. The tempo of our mornings will change from the easy rhythm of summer to the comforting structure of school and fall schedules. Onto a fight for the bathroom each morning, decisions about wardrobe and the excitement of starting a new year of learning and discovery. Bring it on.
