Near the Sea we forget to count the days.......

Our last family vacation before all of the big changes...... October 2007

I would give up 5 years of my life
if I could only live this week one more time.
With all of my girls.
In our intact little family.

What a wonderful week it was.
How I scrimped and saved for this modest beach vacation.
And oh how the girls appreciated it.
They knew how much I had sacrificed to get us there.

I felt such urgency. Not because it had been YEARS since our last real vacation, no, it was something else. My heart must have sensed the changes coming.

I knew I wouldn't be able to afford another trip anytime soon, and 1 just wasn't getting any younger.

I was right. She was gone the next year.

And no matter how hard it was to pull off, how much we budgeted and sacrificed to go. It was worth every bit of it.

Thank goodness we did it.
I would do anything for them.

Someday soon we will all venture to the Sea together again. This time with two new husbands and one new perfect bouncing boy. And it will be a new kind of wonderful. And I can't wait.
