Sea Shell by the Sea Shore – Watercolor
Listen… can you hear it, years and years of families making memories. Can’t hear it yet, put the shell a little closer to your ear, and listen closely, now do you hear the kids laughing as they run back and forth, up and down the beach, avoiding the waves edge. Maybe the laughter as the dad throws his kids high in the air and catching them just before they land in the ocean waters or maybe the building of the first sand castle for some small kids and the amazement in their eyes when something so beautiful can be made from something so simple. Or maybe the teenagers playing games, hoping that they meet someone special to spend their Spring Break with. Or maybe that retired older couple that spends their days hand in hand walking the beach, remembering all those memories and still making more as they go. Can you hear it, can you hear it now? If not, maybe it’s because you haven’t experienced it yet, and just don’t know what it sounds like. Take my advice, and locate the nearest ocean and go, we drive 10-14 hours to get to one, and it’s all worth it! Sacrifice some unnecessary, material things, and take that special one, family or your kids, and go. I think you’ll find that it is all worth it in the end. And while your down there, buy a conch shell, they are only a few dollars, mark the date on the bottom of it, and put your ear close to its opening and listen every once in a while, I think then you hear all the memories that you had made. Thanks, and make some memories with your family!
