I had one personal goal for our vacation; to get my feet wet and sandy.
As we relaxed on a small beach in front of Captain Ron's I found myself wishing that we never had to leave. I attempted to write Amelia's name in the sand...see above photo...but it kept washing away before I could get a picture snapped.
The irony of my attempts to keep Amelia's name etched in the sandy beach were not lost on me.
Isn't that what I am trying to do now?
Trying to give Amelia's life, Amelia's name in the sand, just a bit longer on this earth. How I wish this time with her would never end, sigh.
No one wants to say goodbye. No one wants to go home from vacation. But all things have an end; vacations, bowls of ice cream, bottled water, ...life.
I am learning everyday that there will never be enough on this earth, in this life, to satisfy me.
Our time with little Amelia will never be enough.
I will always yearn for more. I will always be thirsty, as long as I am here on earth.
O God, you are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you,
my body longs for you,
in a dry and weary land
where there is no water.
