This brings me to what summer is!
children playing outside in the pool
butterflies in the sky
sitting in the grass under a tree and reading
having a picnic at the beach
mowing and smelling the fresh mowed grass

Writing is one of those things. I knew something was missing. I loved writing in March and April but when May came, I just fell apart. No excuses!
Sure I have aging parents, school was coming to an end, I had standards to meet and lessons to prepare but the enjoyment of writing could have eased the stress and helped me to cope. Isn't that the way it is?
Sometimes, we have to go through things and situations in our lives to really understand what we are missing. I appreciate all the people who blog and are willing to write down how they feel. It puts them out there. Sometimes at the risk of being shot down but in the end, the community embraces who you are and identifies with you!
I can't tell you how much I appreciated the people who commented on my blogs in March and April, well just anytime that I wrote. Thank you for that.
I will commit myself to the challenge of writing more and commenting more because I know that it is needed and that it is worthwhile for myself as it is for others. I have encouraged my students to stop by this summer and make comments and I will even let them be guests on my blog if they email me. I look forward to a wonderful summer. Happy blogging! ;o)
