My friend Lori has written a list of all the simple, special things she would like in each and every day of this New Year, and you can find it here. Her post says everything I am feeling today. Thank you Lori, for expressing it so beautifully.
Yesterday was a day of celebrations, a birthday for Ian (DH) and the knowledge that he is a year younger than he thought he was ! Yes, he has been telling everyone that he has turned 59, when the reality is that yesterday he turned 58..thanks to our daughter Melissa, who calmly pointed out that we have a more time than we thought before we celebrate the big 60 !
We spent the best part of the day at the beach with our family and went home with sand between our toes, and a little fishy story to recall.
We are not sure what happened to this fish, and why it was found lying on the sand when it should have been swimming around in the shallows.
It was buried carefully and with much ceremony.
