We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature--trees, flowers, grass--grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...We need silence to be able to touch souls. --Mother Teresa

Today is Tuesday, July 3.  For many a teacher, it's almost the half-way point of the summer.  For when we awake on Thursday, July 5, it will be the half-way point of the summer.  It's the moment of sheer panic we feel when we realize that our summer to-do list isn't half done, our summer reading list isn't half read, our school year weight gain isn't half gone, our house isn't half cleaned and those 'projects' related to school, well, they aren't even started. 

But for today, all of that is going to wait.  I have important things to do:  blankets to make for sweet sisters, books to be read, lemonade to be drank and dinner to make. 

Yep.  I don't want to miss a thing.  Just sayin'.

I've always wondered about my 4th of July panic. You are entirely correct! I better make good use of July! Happy 4th!
