Our summer has been full.

Filled up.



But at some moments, I wonder, "Has it been TOO full?  Should we have scaled back?  Had more downtime?"  

But what would I eliminate?  Our amazing VBS?  Watching Lil' N take on soccer?  Parties with family and friends?  Our family vacation?  Swimming in our pool?  Roasting marshmallow?  

I would take nothing back.  Because the summer has been perfectly, overflowingly, full.

Just the way summer should be.  Just the way life should be.  Just the way my heart should be.  

Linking up with the Gypsy Mama for 5 Minute Friday5 minutes of writing with no editing, tweaking or self critiquing.


  1. awesome stuff! it is hard sometimes to figure out if you're trying to do too much or if it's just a season of life where it's okay to feel so abundantly full. heaven knows when it's not this way we'll be wanting it back {;0)

  2. I know the feeling -- so much going on and you wonder if you stopped to catch it all. Thanks for sharing - came by way of The Gypsy Mama.

  3. Beautiful. Family. Pictures. Words. Your heart.

    Here's my first stab at this writing exercise: <3

    It was my first stab at it over at Ordinary Inspirations:

  4. Yes, I feel the same way - a full summer is always great! However, we happen to be on a three-week vacation of nothing this year (lol!) - and that is full, too. Love summer!
