"Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability."
- Sam Keen
"Fairest of the months!
Ripe summer's queen
The hey-day of the year
With robes that gleam with sunny sheen
Sweet August doth appear."
- R. Combe Miller
My dear high school friend has stopped by for an unexpected visit.
She has been on a week long ride across Iowa and boy was she hungry.
I made steak bites and baked potatoes and Greek salad for dinner.
How I loved cooking for Karen and watching her enjoy her meal!
We talked for hours....and we have more time this morning to visit before she leaves.
I have prayed for friends for Katie and me.
I have been blessed by visits from friends this summer...mostly from far away.
I will not forget this summer of friends.
It has been a refreshing gift to me and I am deeply grateful.
Encourage one another,
