“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”
It was smiles all around this weekend. We’ve had the most beautiful weather and it was my Dad’s birthday, so we wrapped up warm and headed down to the beach. Amy and I were in our element. We’re both happiest at the beach and could spend all day there. I don’t even know why, but it’s my absolute happy place. I only have to see the sea and I feel calm and relaxed and it’s always been like that.
The other day, Amy and I went through my baby album and every single picture that showed me in or near water featured a big fat grin or captions like ‘Carli in her element’. Funnily, it’s exactly the same for Amy. She loves swimming and playing on the beach and is so content that she could easily forget the world around her.
It was lovely seeing her race around and just being happy, especially as her health is really challenging her at the moment, but all that is forgotten when she can chase seagulls, collect sea shells or race the waves. So, you know know that we’re happiest at the beach but which place makes you happiest? Is it your bed, your favourite bench in your local park or maybe the sea, too? We’d love to know.
