After running some errands this chilly morning, I packed a lunch and we headed south to a state park we like to visit that’s on the water.
When we began to walk on the beach, the scent of the ocean took me back to my childhood and suddenly I felt elated. I grew up on the Jersey shore and as a child, spent many of my days at the beach.
Here’s another photo of my husband’s back. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again that I really should do a photo book of all the pictures I’ve taken like this. Here’s what he has to say on the subject.
My elation didn’t last, however. So many of the trails had new signs posted that stated “no dogs allowed on trail”. So unfortunately, we left and headed a little bit north to Prime Hook Wildlife Sanctuary where I took the photo below.
Sometimes life is hard for some people and it’s difficult to face yet another day. Especially for a man who doesn’t know how to define himself anymore. Have you ever noticed that a man defines himself by what he does for a living? Sometimes I don’t know what to do to help. Sometimes I just want to give up and run away.
But then I get over it. And life goes on. A friend’s blog today said that she was making lemonade after life gave her so many lemons. And that’s exactly what I think I’ve been doing. I just get tired of drinking so much lemonade.
And I am NOT switching to vodka, either!!
This too shall pass, my friends. So until tomorrow, then . . .
