My favorite thing about summer is camping. Anywhere, anytime. My favorite, however, is when we get together with our kids and grandkids and spend a weekend just being together.
With lives so busy anymore, this is a great time for us to get together, build memories, and just enjoy one another's company. My favorite part is sitting quietly, listening to all the conversations going on. The laughter, the silliness, the hugs and kisses. When it's over it leaves a lump in my throat and a fulfillment in my heart.
I'll be sad for these days to end...
Here's an excerpt from Unfinished Business...
He felt the tremble of her hand against his. “What do you think?” she asked.
Jeff squeezed her hand. “I think we may never know. John was one of three people murdered. The other two were drifters no one had ever seen before. A man and a woman.”
Jeni’s steps faltered and Jeff reached out to grab her about the waist. “Are you okay?” he asked as he steadied her on her feet. Under the street light he could see the fear lining her eyes. “Jen, what is going on? I’ve never known you to be afraid of anything in your life, but twice today I’ve noticed you seem to be afraid of something. What is it?”
Jeni turned away from him, but he wouldn’t let her ignore his question. “What is it? You have always been able to tell me everything, why can’t you tell me now?”
“It’s been ten years, Jeff, I’m not that little girl anymore.” She turned back toward their drive, but he caught her before she could reach the pavement.
“No, you’re not and I’m not that young naïve boy I used to be either. Where have you been? What has you so scared you can’t even talk to me anymore? Jen, ten years may have passed but I’m still here for you, no matter what.”
She shoved out of his touch, staring at him for a moment before shaking her head. “Just leave it alone.” She rushed down the lane toward her home.
The rage inside him brought out the beast within. He could feel the wolf trying to release itself. Whatever frightened Jeni was enough to bring about his protective instincts. He had to maintain control. He had to. . . it was too late the transformation was already in progress. He leaped, the beast within released.
Jeni screamed at the sight of the wolf running fast and hard in her direction. Instincts took over. With a flick of her wrist, she sent the wolf yelping and tumbling across the pavement. In moments, Dani and Jeff’s brothers surrounded them.
“What the hell?” Austin yelled.
“You didn’t!” Dani exclaimed.
Terry and Kerry’s eyes glowed a bright yellow against the darkness, the beasts within them barely contained.
A very naked Jeff, shook his head, warding off the confusion as he stood. “I guess that answers everyone’s questions.”
