Fleeting Moments To Keep

I didn’t realize that one of my most memorable Summer vacation falls on Father’ Day week. Yesterday, I told my wife with a huge smile on my face, “Hey, we will be at the beach on Father’s Day.” Smiling back she replied, “Yes, we will be. It’s my Father’s Day gift to you and a Summer treat to our son.”

Everyday we experience many fleeting moments. Some we easily forget while others last a lifetime. Today, I kept a few to stay forever.

  16. I LOVE the beach. Have you ever noticed how happy people seem there? They run, they play in the sand, they stare at the waves — they smile at you as you pass one another. Oh, and they walk and walk, just listening to the surf. It’s a beautiful, liberating, memory making place. A happy father’s day to you — you shine your light of love for your family out to the world.

    • You are so right. People you don’t know wave at you, smile, even offer a helping hand. Everyone has sunshine in their hearts. I told my wife, “why can’t we have this most of the time? Whe can’t life feel like we are at the beach most of the time?” I’m giving her a hint of where I want to relocate next years from now.
