It’s Friday again, and I’m not sure how that happened! These weeks just seem to be flying by in the blink of an eye. I notice that when I’m in the midst of something that I enjoy (like summer, for instance), I sometimes spend so much of my time and energy trying to savor it, that I end up missing the joy in all of it.
