My, what a busy summer it’s been!  Lots of ups and downs, but undoubtedly stronger through it all.  Among some of the happenings: broken AC in 115 degree weather, a collapsed ceiling, a trip for R to the ER,worries for a dear friend’s health, a terrible eye infection for Roo which we’re still battling, as well as more road trips and a job promotion.  I know I’m forgetting quite a bit, but that’s the gist.

Through this crazy summer, one quote has resonated with me in its wisdom.  It’s similar to the way I try to be present in my yoga practices as well:

“I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
