Tiny, Tiny Tiny...




Yesterday was one of those days at the beach we will remember for the rest of our lives. The weather was warm, the sky was blue, blue, blue, there was just a slight breeze, the water was clear (no red tide), the rocks were abundant as the ocean was really bringing it up from the bottom. Jimmy and Edward played allot in the water (as I scoured the beach over and again for stones), the food, delish. I came away with my yellow bucket almost full of rocks, some smooth pieces of small shells, even a piece of beach glass. But THIS TINY SHELL is what took my breath away. I just couldn't get over it. There it was on the shore, surrounded by thousands of small, very small pebbles, (almost sand, but too grainy), and some larger rocks as well. I guarded it carefully, I knew I had to keep it safe and intact. I just had to get it back to our spot on the beach where my camera was tucked away. I knew that in it's own small way, this tiny shell would keep yesterday forever in our memories...remember the day when.....

Hey Miss Deb...I'll bet one of those little guys escaped from the creek to take a swim in the salt water...and I FOUND IT!!! It is a wonder...so small, so perfect..amazing!!! and it was, truly a memorable day @ the beach..:))

Thank you my friend Joyce...love you too..:))

Thank you Whiney Momma...it is a pretty little shell...my son Edward, the hand model...:))

Heather, it was just a banner day..I had to drag Edward out of bed (20 years old), but he had the best time playing in the ocean, playing in the ocean w/ Jimmy, walking w/ us up and down the shore (a hearty walk as well!!)...truly a day we have marked in our brains to 'remember'...hugs ...:))...(when I look back @ this in a couple of months when we're freezing our little bottoms off, I'll close my eyes, and dream..)

Hey Kim...really, it is such a small tiny, perfect shell...even w/ the little nick...I'm certain that the fairies would love this...oh, we had a glorious day last week...like I said to Heather, in the dead of winter when you are in your summer and we are freezing our little bottoms off, I'll re-read this myself and remember the day when....

Jackie, I am so glad that you enjoyed reading the post...ahhh, the blogs, you never know who you are going to touch...so glad you 'felt' the day and even its calm...continued prayers for you dear Jackie...
