JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 244 :: summer endings

1 Sep

{trust}  

As the sun sets on summer, or what we typically think of as summer, I am feeling the ending of it. Or, in other words, winter is coming. Endings always lead to beginnings. At least we have Fall to buffer the distance between ice cream and snow.

The seasons are changing and if there is anything I have learned in this almost decade of blogging, it is this: with the seasons come knowledge. In fact, wisdom. It is the fall, the harvest, the reaping of what we have sowed that I usually figure out what the year was all about in the first place. My teacher taught me this years ago — fall is the harvest, it is the time when we begin to unlock the bounty before us. So in this year of Trust, I am feeling the seasons turn. 

Summer isn’t over yet, but fall is on its way, and I TRUST that there will be more to learn.   

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 243 :: cuteness

31 Aug

{trust}  

Ah, cuteness. I was thinking today about the beauty of summer, being that we are getting close to the wrap up of it. Summer has a certain cuteness to it, a Lily Pulizter of the seasons if you will. Cuteness can be so uplifting. Almost like a sweet dose of sugar or puppies.

I have one sleeping next to me as I write this. A puppy that is, not sugar. Although Sugar would be a fun name for a dog this one is called Brady. But just like sugar, he lightens my spirits every day. 

I think every day needs a little bit of cuteness. It goes a long way even when it’s not summer.  

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 220 :: trust floats

8 Aug

{trust}  

It’s the height of summer here in Boston. The days are hot and the nights are long. But it won’t always be that way, as we all know, too soon the leaves will begin to fall. So I am holding onto these last weeks of brilliant beauty in the flowers all around me. The birds singing in the morning. The beach waves on the weekend. It’s all so beautiful with the filter of summer. 

And maybe it’s just the understanding that summer will not last forever that makes each day so bright. Football is already on television in the form of preseason games, but still, it is the first sign of summer’s slow down. 

So tonight I hold the beauty of summer in my heart and trust in my head there will be so many things to look forward to this fall. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 201 :: trust the extra

20 Jul

{trust}  

Oh, my, it is… HOT here in New England. It definitely feels like summer. Which makes me thankful for air conditioning and ice cubes and ice cream. I am definately trusting in our AC tonight. 

Trust has me thinking about the little extras that go a long way. 

Trust the extra effort!

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 168 :: trust the sun

17 Jun

{trust}  

The weather forecast calls for rain this week but I am concentrating on the sun. We have a wedding to attend this weekend and we just put little porch lights out on the deck so I have decided to will summer’s presence. Rain or shine.

Maybe trust is more will than patience? Regardless I think it’s best to be the sun in the summer. OR at least trust that it will show up! 

I think that statement applies to many aspects of life. Maybe that’s why we all talk about the weather so much…

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 138 :: trust in the seasons

19 May

{trust}  

Nine years ago I started this blog. Five years ago I discovered my love of flowers. Today, I saw the first blossom on our rhododendron plant. It’s like falling in love all over again.

The rhodies are about to bloom and they make my heart soar. 

I discovered my love of flowers when they were my only hope. I was in my head waiting for surgery and they were in the yard waiting to bloom. Both of us were looking up to the sky every day praying for life. As I waited, they slowly unfolded, each petal gently reminding me of the faith it takes to live and the beauty that comes with it.

It’s five years later and today I discovered that the rhododendron plant in front of our new home on a new coast in a new year and a new life is blooming the color purple. It was Mama Sling’s favorite color. It’s also a good reminder that spring is the best time to bloom and summer is the best time to fly. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 9 – DAY 112 :: float on the water

22 Apr


{trust} 

It poured rain today. Buckets of rain fell from the sky all day long. It made me think about April showers and those promised May flowers.

  And it makes me want to scream: The flowers are coming! The flowers are coming!

Until then, we wait. We float on the water, swim with abandon and trust the tide will pull us forward on the path to spring blossoms and a beautiful future. 

Trust me!
More tomorrow.

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 237 :: joy of sunday

26 Aug
{lazy}

Oh weekend! I do love you, especially a long lazy Sunday full of books and shopping and talking on the phone. All these things bring me joy on a hot, summer Sunday.

But what made it all joyful was the air conditioning in the 90-degree heat. The heat is bearable because I know it’s the end of summer, the last hurrah, the last official week of August summer.

Here’s to the last week of summer.
More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 203 :: follow the lobster

21 Jul
{joy ride}

The joy ride is on!

Today, my friend Amy and I went on a New England adventure. In search of a lobster roll. We didn’t find one but we did find fish for lunch and a sunny beach to sit on with many other New England families. We also found the house that Justin and I spent a winter in on top of pylons on the beach. The house looks different in the summer…. as does everything. As if nature is coated with joy.

Then, of course, to top it all off, we found shopping.
It always comes back to shopping, doesn’t it?

I think this year is teaching me to have more adventures.
And, when it comes to joy, to follow the lobster!

Happy Friday!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 195 :: joy is a pool

13 Jul
{joy}

Today was hot. Which isn’t typical here in the Pacific Northwest. So the best option, among all the boxes I’ve been packing for our move for days now, was, of course, to take a break.

And go to the pool.

There is such a simple joy of sitting next to a pool of water. Especially on a hot day. Even if it was for just a small moment in time it felt like hitting the reset button inside of me. Maybe because it’s because a pool is refreshing? Or relaxing? Or maybe just rejuvenating.

No matter what it is, a small moment by the pool gave me a big mound of joy. Now… back to packing.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
