I am joining Two Writing Teachers for the March Slice of Life Challenge. I fell off the wagon, but decided to forgive myself and get back on.
Today was one of those days that just make you smile. It began bright and early when I opened the curtains to our Florida hotel room and coaxed two sleeping girls out of bed to get their first glimpse of the Atlantic Ocean. I've been looking forward to this moment since we planned our Spring Break trip. I wish I had recorded their voices as they both let out a sigh of "Oh, that's so pretty," as they peeked out the window.
I'm sure the Floridians thought we were crazy as we trekked out to the beach in the 70 degree weather. The girls were eager to get their feet in the water. I warned them that it was chilly and they might not want to go all the way in. How silly of me. There was no keeping them out. I relish watching them just being kids, all their troubles forgotten. They squealed with delight as the waves crashed over them. They got up over and over again, only to get knocked back down.
As the day winds down, I am listening to the girls laugh with my sister and brother-in-law. I knew they would all hit it off right away. It's been a good day for introductions to new people and new things...Life is good.
