Warm Your Soul ...

Sometimes it's hard to remember that I actually went to Maui. The waters were amazing. The few days we spent were a thrill and a blur. Time went too fast. We were flying home and it was over. The plans took forever to make. Which hotels ? Where would we go ? What would we see ? Who had the best pools and beach ? I think we picked well. Some things we won't do again. A few hotels won't be on the list but the locations will.

 I've been home now for weeks. The weather has been too hot or too muggy or just plain yucky. I wish I lived with a beach that rolled in. So, for today I will remind myself and you of what it was like when I pretended for a week to be young and living by the beach. May you all get the chance. It will warm your soul !!!

It would be lovely to live where the weather was temperate all the time.

Lucky you - I have always lived near or by the beach - our 12 years in the mts of NC are the furthest I have ever lived from the sea - I do miss it so much!

I wish I could live by the beach instead of just visiting it every once in a while.

Beautiful picture of a great memory. I lived near the beach in California for my first 40 years. I have to admit I took it for granted.

Maui is my favourite place on earth! I know EXACTLY how you feel :-)

I love the shadows of the palm trees on the sand and surf! I only wish I could visit an ocean, or a large lake... The heat and humidity are taking their toll.

That is a really pretty picture!! Besides Rhode Island... Hawaii is the only state I have never been in!
I wish I could go!

The beaches near here are always cold.

I always feel the let down when I come back from a trip. Kind of similar when guests leave.

Would love a beach near here. I enjoy walking along a beach looking for driftwood and such.

it's lovely

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
