Debbie’s Daily Dose of Food for Thought
"Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit. A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that all's right with the world." - Ada Louise Huxtable
This quote captures some of the magic of July, a month that always seems to fly by. Why not head out to enjoy the summer weather and all the fun things there are to do? Make it a good week!
