Some friends invited us to head to the beach Saturday and I wasn't going to go. Baby Girl had been sick and I wasn't sure if her cough would get worse in the cool, moist air. I didn't want to drive over there. My back hurt. Whine. Whine. Whine. Cry. Cry. Cry.
But when Saturday morning came around I decided we should all go. We loaded the car and headed out into crazy Southern California traffic. We had never been to Crescent Bay and we got a bit lost at one point... but, it was worth it...
At the end of the day the kids were finally done climbing on everything. No one was throwing rocks, playing where they shouldn't, or fighting over toys. And that's when it happened. Just for a moment... really, less than a minute, I felt peace.
Do you have a place like that? A place where you can go and just feel peace... even if it's just for a moment?
