A few short days later, by short I mean three days, we were on the road to my spiritual home. Not necessarily Florida, but the ocean. (I am an avid collector of shells, dolphin pictures, etc. etc. All the more so if it specifically from the ocean.) The journey there was long, we had her four kids ranging from 10 years to 4 months old, which is why we traveled mostly at night.
Our first day on the beach, and I was already in heaven! The temps were so warm, and the water was cool. Shells were everywhere, the literally covered this beach! And yup, I brought some awesome ones home too!
To sit there on the beach, even with everyone around, was the most amazing feeling in the world! The only people I wanted there more was my husband and 7 year old son! Sea shell hunting is an amazing time where you just browse through what Poseidon has washed up for you. It's like you're own present from the God of the Sea! When you find a good one, it's like he's telling you, "Good job! You came home!"
My heart couldn't be any happier on the ocean, unless my boys were with me! Walking down the shore line, going for a stroll on the pier it didn't matter, I was HOME! I had finally made it back to where my heart was calling me to go!
I hope you've enjoyed my visit "home." Don't forget to visit our Facebook:
