Yesterday Trevor asked if we could go to the beach.
I said, not today, but maybe tomorrow we can.
We used to live 15 minutes away, now it's double that
(I know, big deal)
But the kids were little then,
One summer we went almost every day
Now its been a few years since we were last there.
The small beach has changed a little
The firepits are gone,
And so are the few aspen trees that provided a little shade
But the essence was the same
The smell of the water
The heat of the sand
The prickly grass beyond the sand
And the feeling of family & togetherness
That doesn't come as often
When your boys are teenagers.
Thank-you for asking
And we'll do it again soon!
