What a wonderful day to spend on the beach with the girls. The last couple weeks we have been preoccupied trying to care for their brother. There wasn’t a lot of fun to be had for them. Fighting the sadness so I could give the girls could have a little joy this afternoon. Their incredibly happy faces and pure joy of having the whole beach to themselves was just the tonic I needed. An outing meant to help them get over the loss of the brother reminded me of the value of the life and the need to celebrate even in the midst of sorrow. Life is a gift and should be treated as such. There is joy to be found within the sorrow, and life still goes on even after the loss of a dear loved one. We love you Rocky! Thank you for continuing to help us live. We all did a happy dance in your honor!
