Spring Break with my girls has always been a special time for me to pause and enjoy my time with them. Now that my older one is off at college and doing her own spring break, I am down to one daughter and allowing her to bring friends. It's fun to immerse myself in their worlds-they are so funny! Fifteen and "precious" too (wink). Any mom of a teenager knows what I'm referring to. Being that they like their own time together, I have plenty of time to read, reflect and enjoy lots of thinking time.
Why does the seashore bring out that contemplative mood? It always has for me these past few years that my marriage struggled. It's been a comfort to be able to hear God's voice more distinctly and feel the warmth of His light in such peaceful, beautiful surroundings. Just a few cool mornings, wrapped in a throw, hugging a hot cup of coffee and watching the gulf go back and forth! Solace to my soul!
|Found these on a walk. Each one seemed special to me :)|

at Villagio at The Wharf. Yum!
Though it's Spring Break, our condo complex is quiet-one thing I've always liked about it.
I am enjoying Kristin Armstrong's book Work In Progress, a Guide To Grace-I highly recommend it to any single person who is trying get back up from a failed relationship. She is Lance Armstrong's former wife who is a Christian speaker and writer.
If you are on Break, I hope that you are having a wonderful time with family, building bonds and making memories. Relationships are everything! :)
