A Cottage Independence Day

This has been a stressful summer. There is so much that we have on our hearts so we have decided to spend this 4th of July at the lake. We took blankets and towels and headed down in the summer sun to sit among other families. We live walking distance to this beach at the lake so it was close to home and not stressful. 

We took time to play and enjoy one another, even Mrs. Cottage, baby Cottage and Grandma Cottage came.  It was little bit's first time at the lake and we took him to get his feet wet in the water.

Grandma who has been in and out of the hospital and has not been well sat on her walker and watched us play with the baby. We have all been walking on egg shells and holding our breath. It was good to play.

Although we were all reserved, understanding although not wanting to admit it to ourselves what was coming around the corner.

But to be washed in the cool water brought comfort.  To hear the laughter brought healing and hope that tomorrow may be bad, but somewhere in the future, there will be joy again.

We just don't know who will be in it.

Wishing you all a Happy Independence Day.
