There are a few things that make the perfect day for me.
Spending time with my family and friends.
Being at the beach.
Sunshine and clear skies.
When all of these converge into one single day you can imagine that my day is complete.
I am feeling so blessed these days and this past weekend as my immediate family gathered for some time together at Fripp Island you had better believe I was counting my blessings.
Thanks to all of you who have extended birthday wishes to me. I had a wonderful birthday weekend filled with all of the above things. The bonus was a fundraiser I promoted on Facebook for my birthday in honor of my brother in law, Carlton. I chose the National Down Syndrome Society and actually raised $558 from family and friends through my birthday fundraising efforts. Isn’t that amazing? Thanks to all who donated.
The beach, any beach, is a special place for me. It provides a place to walk, get some exercise, enjoy some sunshine and if I am lucky find some seashells to add to my collection. This trip has had the added bonus of having all of us together in one place. That has not happened since the first part of December so you can imagine that this Mama is very happy.
I am in my happy place, counting my blessings and enjoying time with my dear husband who made this all possible. I am indeed a blessed woman. And I know it. I think it shows, don’t you? Or maybe it was that mask.
