Thank goodness for summer vacations.
For nine consecutive days away from my desk.
For a boss who doesn’t expect me to check my email or respond to voice mail.
For on time flights and easy connections.
For the beach – the smell, the sand, the salt and the sun.
For warm water and waves that break at just the right time.
For the comfortable feeling of a very slight sunburn.
For a family that consists exclusively of people I really do want to hang around with.
For fun cousins.
For birthday cake and corn on the cob.
For a good night’s sleep.
For good news and good luck.
For summer in general.
