It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 6, Page 1, Book 21


In early June the world of leaf and blade and flowers explodes, and every sunset is different.

John Steinbeck

June 1st - a new month

June is Bustin' out all over.

Oscar Hammerstein II 

It’s the month of June, a new month and a new season to enjoy.  I love living where we get the change of seasons.  They say June is the gateway to summer.  No it’s not officially here yet, but it’’s warming up here and beginning to feel like it. Every day brings a little more hours of sunlight until the first day of Summer and then we begin to count down the days until fall.

It’s definitely a month to enjoy the great outdoors and many are planning camping trips and vacations.  School will soon be out for the kids, and I just had a granddaughter graduate from high school. I didn’t get to attend her graduation in person but will be sending her best wishes for the beginning of a new chapter in her life.  

All the world seams open to new possibilities when you get out of high school.  I remember starting my first full time job but many look forward to continuing their education with college.  I know that’s what she will be doing.  

I have another grandson that will also be graduating and he has a full scholarship to go to college too.  I wish them both  all the luck in the world as they pursue their degrees.

I’m now retired and looking forward to many days on the porch here at my house.  It’s my favorite room of the house once June comes.  It’s full of sunshine and warth, gently shaded by the large oak tree outside my window.

Its better to be a young June bug than an old bird of paradise. 

Mark Twain

Now I'm singing, "June is bustin' out all oooo-ver" I love the works of Rogers and Hammerstein, perhaps best those songs from Carousel.
Congratulations to your grands on this new season in their lives!
