I have so many precious memories of summer, one of which is going on cicada hunts with my father when I was little. We would venture outside with a plastic container and a butterfly net in hand and we would search in the inky, black darkness for the green, mischievous insects! Another special memory I have is spending lazy days on the beach collecting shells, swimming in the ocean, jumping the waves and feeling the hot, white sand slipping in between my toes!
The present summer is one I am going to remember for a long time for three reasons. First is, we have just bought a house and we will be moving in the autumn, second is, the truly magical water fights my brothers and sisters and I are playing at, and the third reason is, my relationship with God, I feel, is slowly becoming deeper and closer then before!
Cherish each summer you have, even if much of it is spent sweltering under the hot sun or living in a house without air conditioning, believe me, these are the times you are going to remember most. Make them memorable.
