Summer Time Post

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year”… I guess technically that should say its the most wonderful season of the year. Summer is by far my favourite season and as thankful as I am to live in a country that fully experiences all 4 seasons I anticipate summer all year and welcome it gladly when it finally arrives. Summer time means for me lots of time spent at our family cottage – time sitting on the dock, lots of water fun, swimming, yummy food, family time, making lots of memories. For as long as I can remember summer time has always been a special time for me from family vacations to working at camp in my teens now as an adult relaxing at the cottage. Although now  since my sweet babies have joined my little family not a whole lot of relaxing happens but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. When I watch my babies playing at the cottage (not exclusive to just the cottage) my heart is so full of all the memories they are making in their already short life time. I can’t wait to (when they are older) show them pictures of the memories we are making this summer.  Weekends always fly by especially when we are at the cottage and spending our day basking in the hot sun, splashing in the cool water, boating, eating and just having fun.

Here are some of the things you need for your summer day at the lake:

  • Sometimes being an adult you gotta do scary things like getting a bunch of bloodwork and other tests done in order to get answers that are needed but like I shared earlier this week it’s all about your mindset. Yes I was sweating and shaking with nerves wishing I didn’t have to do it but I also was thankful that I have a dr who cares and wants answers, thankful for that these tests are available to me and especially thankful for a gentle and kind nurse who made it easier for me.
  • Woke up to the most beautiful white snow and was immediately thankful it was snow and not the rain they are calling for - thankful that the kiddies have snow to play in (which makes them so happy) and thankful that we have different seasons to experience. It’s amazing how a grateful heart changes your out look on things. There is a lot I could chose to complain about today but where I put my thoughts is my choice and will definitely effects my  entire day! Look for the positives in your day focus on those and don’t give negative thoughts a place in your heart and mind!
  • Mama, You were given these children, you! No one else. 
You were given these children because you are who they need.
You have the soul to love them even on their hard days.
You have the motivation and love to give these children everything they need.
You have the heart to wake up every morning and do it all over again, 
Even when you are exhausted. You have the smile that they crave and the touch to make everything okay. You are their sunshine and their comfort. You are theirs and they are yours! On the days you are questioning yourself, remember this! You’ve got this!
