These trips to the beach swell my heart up, make it throb and then rip it out.
I feel sad when I think of my kids getting older and growing up--I never feel that way more than here. Maybe because when we are here the work and trial and stress of life, fades into a hazy after thought and all I can see is glowing coppery skin, sand covered toes and slippery smiles fresh from the cold waves. All I can see is that they are bigger than they were the last time.
Wont you stay a little longer?
