Yet again it is time for school to start. It's perfect timing for me, I think. I'm ready for it to be cool enough to wear a jacket, hike a canyon when the trees are changing colors, and do something other than pull weeds and water lawns.
It is always nice to say that you learned something from a good experience or one that is not too pleasant to think about. This summer has been a tremendous learning experience for me. For the most part, I'm not completely sure what I have learned. I think its going to be one of those times when you discover why things happened the way they did long after the experience. One thing that I have learned though is that one of the only things you can expect in life is the unexpected. Life has never taken the turns I thought that it would and just like the novel I am reading, I think I have the end all figured out and then it takes me on an unexpected turn. My leap into the dark has been painfully hard, but now that I really don't know where life is going to take me, I try to lean on the guidance of our Father even more.
Well on a less serious subject, Carrie and I had a grand ol' time over the weekend. We hadn't seen each other since the beginning of May. It was so wonderful to see her. Our adventures together definitely brought out our inner child.
Hope your summer has been as much of an adventure as mine!
