Prior to selling our house, my husband and I had planned a weekend trip to the beach. Now, after days of packing and feeling a bit stressed, we decided we would take a break and go on the trip we had planned. So last weekend, we packed (did I say packed?!?!?!?) a suitcase and headed for the beach.
While the move was never far from our minds, we rarely discussed it and we really just enjoyed sitting by the water and watching all the fun.
The hotel had a private beach and it was beautiful and had lots going on. There were boats to watch, and swimmers and sunsets. Great food. Great weather. And we even had dinner with 2 of our sons and a daughter-in-law.
There is nothing like a trip to the beach to lift my spirits and help me feel closer to God. We came back feeling rested and happy. It did not take long to be back in the “moving mode” but I think we are better able to cope with it now.
