Summer has officially arrived; along with the lilies!
Her arrival is now official. Yes, it is our lovely Summer I am speaking of. Yesterday marked the summer solstice in the Northern Hemisphere.
My celebration begins tonight (smile). Mark and I have tickets to attend Zonta’s annual Summer Solstice Wine Soiree. It’s been a yearly tradition we have enjoyed observing since 2006. Delectable foods, excellent wines, wonderful fellowship, a lovely, natural setting and a to-die-for silent auction; all benefitting the local Zonta Club’s Women’s Scholarship Program. What’s not to love, right?
Sara Avant Stover wrote a wonderful book, The Way the Happy Woman: Living the Best Year of Your Life; which provides scads of seasonal inspiration for living abundantly, the feminine way. Summer is now underway; making it the perfect time for me to engage in the mid-year activity she recommends on pp. 179-180 of her book (It's a definite desire item on this weekend's personal agenda.). The questions raised by Stover include these and various others:
- From my list of what I longed to see, be or, experience this year, ___ has come to fruition, and I (did or will) celebrate this by ___.
- Of my top three spiritual goals for this year, I have (or would still like to) ___, and I (did or will) celebrate this by ___.
- Of my top three professional goals for this year, I have (or would still like to) ___, and I (did or will) celebrate this by ___.
What about you; how are you celebrating summer’s arrival? Would certainly love to hear about it! T.
