Summer time

 "Sweet May hath come to love us,
Flowers, trees, their blossoms don;
And through the blue heavens above us
   The very clouds move on."
          - Heinrich Heine



Summer will soon be here once again.
  As we make our journey through life; many good memories from the past surface once again.
 As I grow older, I cherish those times with family and friends more each day.
  I make family DVD's with family photos and mail out once a year at Christmas time. Our family is scattered now as many others are with their jobs and interests.
  We must hold on to our family ties and cherish them.  That's what makes us who we are. We must move on as time passes and make our own memories but never forget where we came from.
 I have a few of my mother's things that she cherished but with 6 siblings; things left over were few.
 I made a dress for a doll with a beautiful tablecloth she left. I think of her when I look at the doll.
 The family gatherings on Sundays after church or the fourth of July cook outs were very special as we  reminisced  and laughed as the children played.
  We knew we were nearing the day when those special times would end as they will for all of us.
 It is time for the next generation to take their turn and make changes they think will make this earth better for them.
  I am glad to be alive. The world is such an interesting place. God is good.
