it must have been "hang your pinecone" at the lake today, because this was one of many i found hanging from tree limbs. the water was full of children's giggles as teens sat on blankets, chips and Gatorades surrounding them. the dog and i explored for a couple of hours as the temperature climbed. later we came home and cleaned off the deck, firmed up the food plans with the ladies for next week at the cabin and read a bit.
i watched their IG feed with love and amazement. i watched as friendships grew deeper and families bonded and thought about how remarkable it all is. i am feeling a bit old and regretful right now. . . where is that woman who says yes! i fear i missed out on tons of goodness.
