What was your favorite summer? It’s likely at least one pops into your mind as memorable. The summer of ‘21 will be one I remember for many reasons. Drums, vacations, new adventures.
This week particularly holds a special place. It marks several anniversaries. This second week in July contains some unforgettable dates in my life.
It’s the week I became a Christian: July 8th, 1986. I started at the radio station the same date in 1989. This is the week I moved away from my hometown Cincinnati to start a new life in Texas: July 11, 1981. My beloved Grandmother passed away July 8, 1984. I broke my collarbone playing baseball July 11, 1970.
And on July 11 of this year, I turned 63 and a half!
I know. I’m a date nerd. But all these moments I’ll hold in my heart forever, as all were defining, and important in their own unique ways.
So how’s this summer going for you? We get a finite number of them, so make them count! We’re just halfway through this one and there’s still time to make it awesome!
