No matter how happy you are at home, a change of scene now and then lifts the soul and offers a new perspective on the everyday humdrum… Last week was Spring Break for Dragon and Peach, so we UpLifted Housers hit the road. Guitar Man has peeps in Jax, FL, and as it’s a long but doable one-day drive, it’s a fairly regular destination for us. We spent two days with family, then headed to the beach at St. Augustine.
The sky was bright blue and sunny, the ocean was frigid – at least to Guitar Man and me – yet the kids grabbed their boogie boards and ran headlong into the waves. From my comfy beach chair in the warm sand, I spent hours watching our two and loads of other kids body surfing and boogie boarding. It struck me that catching waves is a lot like the life I’m learning to live.
