"It is not so much a matter of traveling as of getting away; which of us has not some pain to dull or some yoke to cast off?" George Sand
When Asher is really happy- like really really happy- he claps twice quickly. It's a two clap kind of happy. And that's the beach for us Chaneys- two claps. Hours and hours saunter by and we love every one of them - our evening after glow to prove it.
The kids have plenty of distraction-free time to play in the waves and I have plenty of time to sit back and think about them and be thankful for Asher's golden year of childhood and Zeke's growing brain and kind heart and Anna Grace, my woman-child growing every day in what grace means and who she is and how much she's loved.
Like I said, Two. Claps.
