Sounds of Summer…

Ones I Savor…

  • When Carson says, “That’s the bomb!”
  • When Campbell says, “That’s a gweat idea!”
  • “Tell me about this new church…”
  • “Your table’s ready…”
  • “I enjoy reading your blog”
  • the signal on my phone that indicates I have a new text message
  • “Happy Birthday to you!”
  • SPLASH!
  • Lots of laughter
  • the breeze off the ocean (haven’t heard it often enough)
  • anything with the word NewSpring in it (Oh, btw – the next meeting for NewSpring Florence is this Sunday night, August 3, at 6:30 at the Baptist Collegiate Ministries (BCM) building at FMU; childcare will be provided. I am pumped up; see you there. Did you love my not-so-subtle plug?)
  • the sound of pages turning in an awesome summer read (Have you read The Shack yet? I finally mustered the courage, and it was well worth the difficulty of the first six chapters. First book I think I’ve ever read that gave me sweet dreams – just thinking about how good He is…)

Ones I’m not Diggin’ so much…

  • “MaaaaaaaaaMaaaaaaaaaaaa!” followed by an incriminating report (I am sure that I was a tattler as a child. I don’t remember being one, but given my personality I am sure that I was one. And I do hereby publicly repent for all of the anguish I caused my parents. It is honestly about to get the best of me!)
  • “I’m bored.”
  • Cow-thon or Caw-thorn (mispronunciations of our last name)
  • “Mama, I gotta go potty” when we’re in a restaurant, in a car, and especially on a bus (shaky, bumpy potty, for sure)
  • “Hello, may I speak to Sheila?” (my real name – Who is she?)
  • “What are we going to do fun today? tonight? in the morning? tomorrow?”
  • Wailing
  • The sound of my temper revving to indicate that my engine is low on patience. I was runnin’ hot today, and it was not wise to stay at home all day with my two sweet ones…

What’s your summer sounding like?

As if...

    I can so identify with most of those!

    You haven’t gotten “Coffin” yet? I was even given a medicine bottle with that on it in my teenage years!

    I now have the joy of hearing Lily cry 3x a day about school starting in 7 days….here we go again!

    Enjoy the rest of your summer!!
