I was looking through some old photos recently and came across this one. It is from a few years ago at our favorite beach. I thought it would be great for today. I like this picture of Ian getting his feet wet at sunset time. It was a very cloudy evening yet still lovely.
Some of my family is having fun at this beach, but we weren’t able to make it this year. Instead we are doing other fun activities. I do love the ocean and am enjoying their amazing pictures from this summer. I am also enjoying mine from a few summers ago.
As I wrote about recently, we went to Charleston and got to see that coast at the harbor. It is equally lovely and was a great trip seeing family. We had a chance to go swimming as well. It has been a good summer so far.
Yesterday I asked Ian how he was enjoying his summer, and he said, “I am Mommy.” “Is there still anything you want to do Ian?” “Just go downtown Mommy.”
That will be a fun trip to a favorite city’s downtown street. There is much to see and do and it is something to look forward to. We should be able to do that this weekend. Downtown includes a great toy store, a general store, a wonderful bakery, a few used bookstores and a frozen yogurt shop. There are also a variety of great restaurants and coffee shops.
Today I am thankful for:
- Beach time with my family
- Toes in the sand and water
- Swimming with family
- Family cookouts
- An ice cream cone
- Photos taken by family and friends
- Reading a new book with my son
- Finishing a book of my own
- Dinner out with my best guys
- Lightning bugs at sunset
- Time with dear friends
- Sharing a joke with a friend or family member
- Remembering a loved ones life
- Celebrating the news of a new life
- Sharing prayer requests with others
- Spending time window shopping and getting a treat while downtown
I wonder when I will be at the beach again? I hope that it is soon, but in the meantime, I will enjoy other bodies of water and make the most of the time and places that I find myself in. Have a great day!
