This Summer

Musical mood for this post: Shiny Toy Guns

There were a lot of things I wanted to do this summer. There was a list of things I wanted to accomplish and, not surprisingly, none of them got done. But, in a way, some of them did.

  1. Fix iTunes
  2. guitar picking
  3. art masterpiece
  4. ukulele
  5. music video
I will go ahead and tell you I did none of those things specifically and that is a little sad on my part. But, I did other things and I feel like this summer has been amazingly worthwhile and full. I've discovered new music with the help of my friends and become more diverse than I was. I've gotten better at guitar despite only practicing occasionally, I've picked up the uke every now and then too... but my happiest achievement is in making a masterpiece of friends. My life has become so much more colorful and meaningful and just FULL in general because of people in my life. I feel like a lot had been missing and I went into the summer thinking I'd just hang out with my sister and spend time doing those things-things done alone. But, I haven't. I've been out and involved and I've been living. I've been enjoying everything I have in front of me. I guess that's really why I'm taking it hard that tomorrow must come. Because today and all the days before that this summer have been so beautiful and special to me and I don't want them to end. I know each chapter as I keep walking through the pages of life will be special in it's own right but it's all so unfamiliar and uncharted.

Dear God, guide my way as I enter into this year. Only You know the plans You have for me.

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11

  1. Dear Mikaella,
    I like the picture. Even though you did not get to do what you wanted I had so much fun hanging with you and having a great summer!
    You have all year and everything to do what ever and some people never finish everything they want to do in life but they enjoyed them self to the fullest and regretted nothing.
    Good blog.
