Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it. – Russell Baker

Some random observations about summer…

I think I like the summer season best of all. We just started summer on June 21 and it ends in September.

I enjoy hot days and I like a fan better than I do an air conditioner. Of course, living in Montana we don’t have too many miserably hot days, so it’s not too bad. I like climbing into bed at night with a fan blowing the warm air around the room.

I love the warm nights when I can sit outside and admire the stars. There’s no place better than Montana (Big Sky Country) to do that. When my children were younger we would head out into the country and find a spot where there were no streetlights and watch the stars. I am always in awe of God’s work as I lie on the ground and look up at the stars. Wow!

I think life is a lot like the four seasons. Our childhood is spring up until about age 25. Summer is ages 25-50, fall is ages 50-70 and winter is ages 70 and above.

Here’s a piece of wisdom from someone in the fall of his life – enjoy the seasons. Especially summer.

Have a great week!
