Testing the water

A friend sent me some pictures of her little daughters walking by the beach. They are 5 and 3 and they are so beautiful. They pick up shells they play in the sand and then they test the water. She got some great pictures of them walking gently into the water and then jumping back and then on successive times getting wetter and wetter. Suddenly they got their hair wet, they sat in the tiny waves, they ran and jumped the water as it approached. It is wonderful to see the progress.

I am sure we all approach things with the same kind of gentleness. But do we persist? They did, each of them did, they kept trying and it got good. it was good it was wonderful it was so much fun.
She sent one picture that had them seated side by side in the water to their waists ...just looking out into the world. Looking out into the world. Looking out ahead. But more importantly side by side--together.

Life is better when shared with another.

God abide
There's work to be done!
