PURPOSE? EVEN DURING SUMMER VACATION?

When I was in elementary school, I always looked forward to summer vacation. Yet, I wasn't always happy during those summer months. I felt something was missing in my life—especially on rainy days. My brothers and I would play plenty of games, and we also got into plenty of trouble on occasion.

By the time I was in junior high school, things started to change. I was getting busier with lawn mowing jobs and summer sports. My summers from eighth to twelfth grade were the best. They went by quickly. Every day I had a purpose for getting out of bed and out of the house. This feeling of purpose even made going back to school in the fall a whole lot better. I actually looked forward to the new activities and learning. It now seems that the busiest summers and the busiest school years were my favorites.
