Dear June,

So many emotions. So many thoughts. So many things. 

The countdown to summer came and went and now I'm a tad bit sad and miss the kiddos. To be honest, I love and need summertime. I need the break and chance to break free and do all the things that I haven't had a chance to (aka catch up on sleep and have social life). But there's this other part of me that misses being busy at work. That misses the hugs and laughs from the kids. And misses that teacher identity I have nine months of the year, too.

But I've been doing more and more at church and that's been really good for me. It's given me a chance to get out of my comfort zone a bit (and to speak on stage with a microphone!), help out more behind the scenes, and just be involved and connected. And while it's exhausting, it's so rewarding and so much fun.

I've made the hammock my second home (or third, if you count church as my second) and have been reading books like crazy. Right now, I'm re-reading The Road Back to You, Boundaries, and have The Road Between Us at the top of my to-read list. You could say I'm living and breathing all things Enneagram!

The little June details included Sunday naps, tan lines, falling in love with denim jackets, going to see Hillsong United with my sister, celebrating family events, getting my car fixed, crossing off to-do lists, going to a 5 year old's birthday party, and watching my little preschoolers graduate.

June, life's taken me all over the place. Disappointed. Annoyed. Frustrated. Excited. Relieved. But most of all, clinging to hope. I'm unsure of the future. A little confused, to be honest. But leaning on hope and a whole lot of Jesus.
