Somewhere in my past life, the beach was a place for peaceful reading and sunbathing.

The beach could not be any different for me now but yet I love it.

I love how Elijah likes to fight the waves.  I love how Graham sticks close to me and Abbey, not quite brave enough to venture out as far as his brother.  And Abbey is fearless.  She doesn’t stop til a wave knocks her down.

It’s hard not to wish away each season of my life.  But I know in my heart, when the day comes that I can go back to peaceful reading and sunbathing, I will wish those sandy little children were begging me to play with them.
