It's summer! I should be happy, right? I get to wear my sandals, the flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and the birds are chirping. But I'm one of those people who doesn't enjoy much about the summer months. Living in Louisiana, I won't see temperatures under 90 degrees again until Sept/Oct. and I hate the heat.
I do love wearing my sandals though and love the flowers but that's about it. However, so many things have been happening in the world lately that have been negative so I refuse to let the summer get me down. I'm going to try my best to be happy for every minute of every day! Live is precious and we should all thank god that we are here to enjoy it.

Good news though... while there my husband emailed me an article about a doctor that was experimenting with coconut oil on an Alzheimers patient. That patient was making remarkable progress so we ordered some immediately for my dad. The day that I left for home, my mom got the coconut oil and began giving it to my dad. That evening, she said my dad was really good and has been good ever since. Now it was too early to tell if it was the coconut oil or not, but we have hope!
Anyway, life is short. Too short in some instances. I pledge to be a better person, better writer, and more positive. It's going to be really hard for me because I do tend to be negative, but luckily I have a very positive friend/writer (Deborah Lynne) who will shake me up and put me in line!
How about you? Are you happy summer is finally here?
