Ahhh Summertime...

Summer is officially here.

Kate and I have been trying for weeks to soak up as much of it as possible. We've been to the pool, to the beach. We've been on picnics and we've played front yard baseball.

Being out in the sunshine just seems to heal us. It reminds us that we are just little tiny people in the great big world. There are so many other things going on and no matter how hard we try to stop it, life just keeps on rolling.

We can't go backwards. We can't undue the past. We can simply live for the moments that we're given today. Kate will hear certain songs on the radio and tear up. Announcing from the backseat that she's "sad Daddy is gone but he always sing me this song when I was a baby. Member mom? He loved it."

She's right. Be sad for a moment. Allow the loss to fill you. Long to make the call to tell him Sloop John B is on.

Then let it pass. Let the memories of Scott singing the song to my pregnant belly bring a smile to my face. Rejoice in all the moments we had to laugh, tell bad jokes and be part of Scott's life. There is still so much goodness on earth. Scott wanted us to always find it.
