And since all this loveliness cannot be heaven,
I know in my heart it is June. ~A. Woolson
Remember the joy of turning a calendar page, the end of a long school year finally within view? That a long and wonderful summer stretched out before you like a magical shimmering lake?
June is my favourite month. It's a time of anticipation. Of growth. Of infinite possibility.
Did you know that the word June has it's origin in the Latin word iuniores, meaning youthful ones? June is the beginning of a journey, it's greatest beauty hidden in our knowledge that it cannot last forever.
Let's remember that as we approach the longest days, and sieze every opportunity to dive in headfirst, ride the midway, run in the grass barefoot, laugh in the sunlight...and play outside until dark.
