I’m back after a weekend in the California sun. My heart is full and I feel as though I need to just have a second to look back and take it all in. As excited I was to go home and snuggle my loves, I was sad to leave my far away friends and the sound of the ocean. I know I’ll feel like standing still this week. Afraid that if I move the rhythm of the waves will slowly disappear and I’ll forget what they sound like.
Of-course life happens, as it did at 3:30 this morning with a feverish little E. It was cartoons on the couch at very early hours in the morning. I’ll revisit the surf and conversations in my head, but we all know it’s impossible to stand still. I’m grateful for dear friendships that will continue even if I have difficulty hearing the soothing waves.
