I mean who can help but take photos at the beach...pictures don't do God's beauty justice. A friend used the analogy of the ocean to describe God's love. It is vast, constant, deep and beautiful. When you look at it, you can help but praise God for his artistry. I also praise Him for the relationship he has given me with my extended family. When my Aunt died, it changed me...but one good thing that came out of that awful moment was a wonderful and special relationship with her amazing children. She would be so proud of who they have become and they remind me so much of her - a little spit fire and a whole lot of heart! Going to the beach with my family is a special tradition I hope lives on but as we get older, the times are a little farther apart! These pictures mean so much to me as they capture special moments...I don't ever want to forget!
And good-byes are never easy...but at least it is just a good bye for now and we will see you soon! We are trying to convince them to come to ISU and live out their mom's legacy ;)! AND I would be near by to spoil them if they get home sick!
