"If instead of a gem, or even a flower, we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend, that would be giving as the angels give." George MacDonald
I so get that these days. With Manasota Key only 2 miles away it's not unusual for me to pop over for an early morning beach walk for sunrise, come home and do the domestic thing, then head back for some late afternoon sharks toof hunting. My mom's recent stroke has pretty much put the brakes on my beach combing flexibility. Even the time to blog is a challenge. On my daily priority list the beach and blogging have sunk to the low end of important things to do. I hope I don't sound like I'm whining. We all want to make a difference in the world and sometimes that difference is not on a faraway continent - it is in our own neighborhood or home. So mom is improving every day and hubby is maintaining. I'll be vicariously walking the beach with the rest of the cyber-shellers for now.
