Be Intentional

This has been a very full summer.  We still have one month to go and I am exhausted, my house is a mess, and my garden has gone to seed.  We have played very hard, hosted a family reunion and spent many days at the lake.  As you can see from the photo, my baby girl loves the lake!

One goal I had for summer was to be very intentional about making memories and spending time with my kids.  In a few short months, my oldest four children will all be over 18..I can't even believe that all happened so fast.  Last night as I was falling asleep, I was remembering laying down with those big kids for naps while the rain pounded on the roof.  I remember at the time thinking that I wanted to remember that feeling forever.

Really, in the end, all you have is your memories and the love.  So, be intentional and make the memories good ones and love too much, as my MaryGrace would say!
