Dear July 2018,
You're hard to describe. I feel like the only easy way to explain it is to compare it to one of those really good caramel chip frappes from Dairy Queen. I was so excited to get you in my hands, yes! finally! and once I sipped the last bit of the whipped cream, I silently cried because it's over with already.
Can I just stop the tape and rewind?
This summer, being the last summer spent as a high school student was special to me. And spending it with my family and friends meant even more to me.
Can we back up to the fourth of July? The day spent out on the boat, and the fun firework show and all the laughter? What about all those times swimming until I was a shriveled prune? lol!
I just really felt God giving me this piece of contentment this July. Like, I may not have all I want, but I have all I need, and God showed me that. I'm forever grateful for the laughter, the scrabble games with my grandparents, the nights spent staying up until three in the morning with my besties. I think sometimes we take those moments for granted, but I can happily say that this past July, everything was soaked up.
Unforgettable memories were made, even if we didn't go on this crazy vacation (waiting for next years epic trip! hehehe). God gives us joy right in our homes.
I know things are going to change as I become a senior, then graduate, and get a job of my own. So, that's why this year, and this July, I'm grateful for the time I got to spend with friends and family. These are the people who will never leave my side, and will always be there when I need them the most, and I want them to know that I appreciate them so much. You know who you are. (;
My heart is full. My eyes are leaking some sort of watery substance now (is that what tears are? :'D ) Joy unspeakable. Those are the right words.
As sad as it is that July is over, August, I'm excited for you. Fall, I'm coming for you, along with my sweatpants and candy apple candles. WOOOOO!
I'll Keep Smiling,
