waste not a moment
We roasted marshmallows, we looked down on the treetops, we gazed at the stars and then, in the quiet, we whispered our goodnights. We browsed through books, we sang out loud... shared time with family, laughed and we celebrated this life we live. We wandered paths, found a heart shaped leaf and sailed across lakes... admiring wildlife in the wild and at the zoo. And we sat in the dark, hands meeting in the larger-than-life bucket of popcorn as stories unfolded before us. Eyes met in amazement and we chattered away as we watched the previews...
This was one of those weeks, one of those seasons, that will keep me warm after my eighteen summers have passed. I'll look back and know... that we had it all.
