Gratitude for the Gifts of Summer

Blessed is the gift of the Summertime, just now departed…
Sticky sweet,
Humming and buzzing with life
And the ripening…

Summer love. Summer breezes. Summer nights. Summer vacation.

Peaches.  Flip-flops.  Beaches.  Fat, red tomatoes.  Hummingbirds.

What are you most grateful for when summer comes?

Has summer changed for you over the years? For instance I know that for me, childhood summers were vastly different than they are in the grown-ups’ world. What about you?

What gifts has Summer bestowed upon you this year? What juicy harvests did her ripening bring you, that you may now savor?

Or perhaps you remember a special, most magical summer of all. Why was it so?

In keeping with our gratitude practice, I would love for you to count your own summer blessings, and share them with us here.

    I often say I tolerate summer only because the vegetables require it. I am thankful, though, for being in Maine and for summers that do not hurt my body nor my soul. I am not a hot-weather person, preferring the colder nights and moderate days of spring and fall and the crisp and quiet of the stark winter.

    For this summer, I am especially thankful for the addition of tractors and implements to help tame the weeds, for the harvest that fills my freezer and shelves and was shared at market.

    Summers for me have always been a busy time; as a child I was outside and as an adult, I am as well. It has always been a time of being with the Earth, of growing and harvest. I grew and sold parsley out of my red wagon as a kid; now I grow more and sell and farmers’ markets.

    The most remarkable difference between childhood summers and adult summers for me is that summers used to seem wonderfully endless with each moment being the only moment.

    Summer gifts: being outside more, sweat, the wonderful warmth of the sun, a flourishing garden, a general ease and slowing down.

    This magical summer brought me amazing love! Every day, I thank all the Powers That Be for bringing him into my life! 🙂

    First of all… Hallelujah, Regina.
    Some other summers have been spent sizzling with a new lover
    or soaking up nature at a cottage.
    This summer’s gifts were all about introducing my grandaughter to each flower, tree, bush, bird and bee in her garden(they each say hello to her in a different voice).. even the wind.
    Just as sweet and succulent as any other summer!
