roses in december

remember how pres. monson is always saying that God gave us memories so we have roses in december? today i am remember what it was like to sit on the gorgeous deck at finca maresia in drake bay costa rica last year. the view of the gorgeous sky (i took this photo there), the scarlet macaws flying by, the warm air, the jungle noises slowly drifting up, the cats asleep at my feet, the half read book in my lap, the lack of any responsibility, the promise of a delicious spanish meal made by darling juan, siiiighhh. i would give everything in my bank account to be back there now. but for now i will remember, and smile as i listen to some student struggle through 'girl from ipanema' on the trumpet that is drifting down the hall to my office.
