I am lucky to be in a place with a sky like this.  I know that most of my family and many of my friends shoveled snow today.  In prior years, I would have been doing the same.  But instead, I was able to put on sweats and a light jacket and walk on this beach.

 

I am very grateful for the beauty and warmth God has created.  I’m also grateful for the gift my parents left my brothers and me that enabled me to be in this place.  And I am grateful for the opportunity to share this beauty.
