Some would say, you can take the girl out of Indiana, but you can’t take Indiana out of the girl. Some would be right about that. I was reminded this week of corn knee high by the 4th of July, the blessing of cousins, and the thrill of a lightning bug. We sat for real on the porch, drank coffee and talked about the heat wave because it was important. Do you know why? Well, it just is.
I lived slow for most of my life in a small southern Indiana town that used to be named Lick Skillet. (I can’t even make that stuff up, ya’ll.) I went back this week with my littles and did it again. Only this time the giggles were theirs and the joy was all mine.
And that friend, is what summer is all about. Have you slowed down enough to catch your breath? Do you know how important it is? Well, it just is.
