September is here! Tourists are gone, it’s the best time to hit the beach. Kids are going back to school. Maybe families have just one last BBQ or weekend camping trip planned. We are so fortunate & blessed to live here in sunny California, and especially here at San Clemente Villas by the Sea. It’s pretty close to an endless summer here. “The cruise ship that never sails.” So remind yourself to take time to sit back and relax, smile and enjoy life! Positive thinkers are healthy people and people I want to be around, it’s contagious!
Our days are gradually getting shorter. Fall begins September 22nd. Days are still warm and pleasant while our nights are getting cooler.
I have 6 grandchildren. One is going into 3rd grade, one is going into 2nd grade, one preschooler, one 3 yr. old and a 10 month old. What an exciting time as I watch my family grow! It’s a busy time also, helping in the classrooms, going to their games, plays, dance recitals, and special occasions. I am so proud of them all! Sometimes it hard to find the time but I always remember they are only young once and to enjoy this while I can. Weekends are usually family time. I absolutely love being a grandma, the grandchildren call me “Mema”. I love them so much, they light up my life! They keep me young and active.
Speaking of being a grandparent, It’s National Grandparents Day on September 8th. So celebrate all you grandparents! I hope you know how incredibly blessed they are to have you. Invite your grandchildren to visit, take them to the pool or reserve our library or private dining room for a family dinner. We welcome everyone, anytime. I feel very lucky to have known and lived with both sets of grandparents as I was growing up. The memories are so vivid and the stories that came to life were part of my childhood. There are so many residents that I’ve gotten to know that have such fascinating lives, and you’d never know until you sit and chat. I encourage everyone to take a moment and ask someone where they’re from or what they did in their lives. Who knows what you’ll learn. It’s a great way to stay active and alert. I’m so happy to be here at the Villas and to have the chance to know so many incredible residents and families.
