Happy Place

Can’t explain exactly what it is about the lake that makes it my favorite.  It’s just a little bit of everything.  The best of all five senses washed into one spot.

Whatever it is, as soon as we go to the beach and I take one big breath, the drive and whiny kids in the car are all worth it.

Here’s our night of dancing in the soft sand at the water’s edge, throwing rocks just to hear the sweet splash, drawing our names in the soft sand, and breathing in the life of moments that matter, until the sun just sneaks over the edge of the world, leaving barely a hint of sunset to wash us with warm color…

   
    
    
    
   And now we rest, because tomorrow we’ll play.

Amen.
