Beach Day - Apr 3.11
. Sunday was a beautiful day on the South Shore. So after church, we headed to Risser's Beach.. We all wrote in the sand, and Molly and I spent a lot of time collecting shells, beach glass and sand dollars. It was a stellar day for sand dollars: we found 40! Do you see Ms Packman? . Carolina sat for a long time, perhaps just soaking up the sunshine, perhaps dreaming of Mexico; perhaps both. . On our way home, we stopped at LaHave Bakery. .
..... brownies, carrot cake, a Molly square, a scone ... delicious coffee and hot chocolate. And story telling and laughter -- lots of laughter..
It was a tonic for the soul after this long, cold winter (which I'm sure will make another attempt to dampen our spirits before it finally give up for the year).
And it was a beautiful testament to the glory of God's creation and His love for us. It was a day when I felt glad to be alive. It was a day when I felt glad not only to be loved but so glad for the opportunity to love!
It was a good, good day!
