Toughing it Out in Paradise
Spending sweet time with my girl, settling her in with my sister and her amazing family. Sweet time, indeed.
Yes, I've turned the world upside down. For the time being, doing nothing seems to be the key to everything. This is unfamiliar territory.
|Swimming at Grandmom's house|
|With Grandmom's poodle puppies|
|Walking to the beach park with her cousin|
|Enjoying an early morning ocean breeze|
|Walking on the beach to the market for juice and a muffin|
|...where the locals hang out and the tourists shop|
|Myna birds are Hawaii's version of grackles|
|She's turning into a beach girl like her cousin Becca|
|In the evening, Uncle Mark starts a fire in the back yard for marshmallows|
|A beautiful evening under the stars with snacks and new friends|
|Slumber party with the youth group girls - sleeping off the nail polish fumes|
|Today I enjoyed the view from that blue covered bench - the morning mist doesn't even touch me here|
|How long has it been since I sat still, soaked in the glory of the creation around me, and adored the Creator?|
