Although hectic, this past week gave me such an opportunity with all four of our grandchildren gathered for some summer fun. A night-time swim at the community pool with our senior-most granddaughter, visiting from Tennessee and celebrating a Sweet Sixteen birthday, was a memory-maker. It was great to witness the kids bonding and to see them all doing the cannonballs into the pool followed by much laughter. This was indeed a day -- and a week -- we were blessed to have.
Now, the humidity and the thunderstorms have returned and may be around for most of the coming week. Superdawg and I are going to have to work at getting back into a good walking routine. No matter, each time we are able to greet the dawning of a new day will be a high privilege and time to be savored not squandered.
