What is it about sun and water? There’s something magical that happens when the two come together. I was hesitant to get in the water today. I was quite content laying on the beach soaking up the sun. Listening to the waves crash while feeling the warmth blanket my body. In the midst of my tranquil meditation I hear, “Mom, come play with me.”
My first thought was Damit. I don’t want to get wet. My second thought was don’t be an idiot. Get your old, tired ass out there, and play with your daughter. I went wave jumping, and I have to say it wasn’t hateful. It’s amazing how much fun you can have when you just let loose a little. I still refused to get my hair wet, but she didn’t care. I was there, and that’s all that mattered.
