I’M a very happy person right now. Circumstances have coalesced so as to give me the opportunity to be away from my “regular” life this summer. I’m spending the time basking in love and light. The love comes in the person of my beautiful one year old granddaughter who I’m looking after. (Don’t go making judgements about my age. You don’t know what the deal might be. LOL.) The light comes from the place. I’m living south of my permanent home. I love the weather here. I’ve written in the past about how much I dislike the cold and dark and being here seriously makes me question why I live where I do.
Because there will be a lull in my usual responsibilities, the plan is for me to do a lot of writing. I’ve already started and the topics are popping into my head at breakneck speed. Some of them I’ll be sharing in this blog. My location leads me to want to write about the Civil War and race history in this country. And I think I’m going to try to tackle feelings about growing older (yeah, it’s the grandmother thing. I said, don’t judge!) I always write about spirituality and religion so I’ll continue to do that. Last but not least, I’m definitely going to write about gratitude. I’m so grateful to be in this position this summer. I’m aware that it’s enviable and a blessing. At this point I feel as though the bridge that the waters of my life have flowed under may be gone but I sit in a boat of gratitude floating onward.
Are there any summertime topics you think I should write about? Please let me know by posting a comment. Help me make this time well spent!

What a beautiful way to spend the summer. Although your one year old granddaughter is many moons away from understanding the depth of your feelings and gratitude, she too is basking in your love and light. She is such a lucky girl! She also has some grandmother- zero judgment here, no grandmother I know blogs!
Thanks! I am definitely the lucky one.
You sound so much at peace. May that feeling of joy and contentment fill all of your days this summer and beyond.
Thank you so much for your well wishes! May you also live in light and love.
Looking forward to hearing your reflections as you walk this path. So much hidden history in Virginia to uncover and explore. Enjoy the journey.
