Heading to the beach

Well today I got up and got moving so I could make it to my chiropractic appointment by 9:00am. I am telling you, what a difference it makes to have my adjustments. It has been a miracle finding Keith. Today we didn't really do very much just got ready for our Spring Break Vacation to the Beach. Lee has ball games all week, not sure why the school does that because then the family can't have a Spring Break together but... such is life. Jeff will work from home and Lauren and I are heading to Sequim to spend a few days with some dear friends of ours who live right on the Beach. We can't wait. I don't know what it is about the beach that is so relaxing but it is amazing and we are so grateful for their hospitality.

I am not a real big DEEP WATER person but I do love being at the beach and watching the waves roll in. I always am amazed at how blessed we are to live in such a beautiful place. I won't write much tonight, I need to head to bed, but will leave you with some beach photos and a neat story about the beach. Thanks again for believing in me, all of you certainly make a big difference in my life and I am sure in the lives of many others. GOOD NIGHT!

                                       Story of the Starfish

As a man walks peacefully along a beach he see's an active figure in the foreground. He appears closer and stumbles upon a young boy surrounded
by thousands of washed up and dying starfish. One by one the boy is picking up the starfish and throwing them back into the sea.
The man saddened by what he see's says to the boy,
" what difference will that make"
picking up another starfish, as he throws it back into the sea, the boy turns to him and says
"it will make allot of difference to this one"
the man continues to walk home, and as an author sits at his desk and tries to write the next chapter of his latest novel.. He hit's a writing block, he can't write a word.. All the man can do is think of the boy at the beach. He puts down his pen and leaves his house. Making his way back to the beach, he spends the rest of the day with the boy picking up starfish and throwing them in.
You see whatever you do during the time that you have, if you can say you touched a life by your actions then it has made a difference to the world.
