"There it was, there it is, the place where during the best time of our lives friendship had its home and happiness its headquarters."
- Wallace Stegner
"Crossing to Safety"
Summer is here.
Always arriving in a hurry too.
And then before you know it, out the door she goes - which it will inevitably leave open.
It's the season which instilled my fondest childhood memories.
I pray for the same thoughts to hold true with my children... and it seem to be unfolding right before my eyes.
