Life is such a roller coaster. And as much as I love a good long day spent at a hot amusement park I really don't enjoy roller coasters all that much. The ups, the downs, the suspense, the terror, the neck jerking twists and turns; knowing that there's an adrenaline filled drop at the edge of the hill you've been slowing climbing, all the while listening to that ear assaulting clicking of the chain, ugh! Give me a nice long sit at the edge of a pond, please!
But the ups and downs and crazy twists and turns are part of what makes a nice long sit at the edge of a pond so incredibly delightful. Life is vibrant and wild and depressing and dull and fast and slow and... well so far so good.
We've been invited to a bonfire this evening on one of the nicest days of the month thus far. A perfectly lovely time awaits us four adults and three kiddos. I will finally be able to mark something off this month's to-do list: 6. Enjoy a bonfire. (yes, it's been a bit crazy around here lately) And it couldn't have come at a better time. Hooray for good friends and really great people!
