It's the things NOT on the to-do list that make life worth while


We had an unexpected beach day yesterday.
Woke up and planned to clean and do laundry.
Next thing I know I get a text from my mother in law.
She had been at work for about an hour and decided the weather was too nice to be sitting inside all day.
"Let's go to the beach." it said.
So we did.
All of us.
Packed up and on the road at a moments notice.
An hour later we were eating sandy WheatThins and watching the kids chase seagulls.

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me),

It's always our self we find in the sea.
