Not that I didn't know it before, but last week when Mike and I took the girls to the beach just to watch the sunset, I realized that I live in one of the most beautiful spots in the world, but I don't get out nearly enough to appreciate it. I decided that from now on I am going to make it a point to take the kids out regularly, so that they don't take it for granted too. It doesn't have to be any big trips, just taking time here and there to get out and appreciate God's handiwork. Watching the sunset was such a simple, yet refreshing thing to do; we drove to the perfect spot, grabbed our blankets, sat the girls on our laps, and snuggled on a log while we watched the sun go down. Today when we went shopping off island, we made sure we stopped for a 45 minute hike on Rosario Beach on the way back. The view from the isthmus was breathtaking, especially with the kayakers paddling by, and the girls loved climbing the rocks (and Josh loved scaring me by hovering too close to the edge of the cliff). We ended our time by skipping rocks and teeter-tottering on driftwood. Can't wait to see where we go next. You should try it....what are you taking for granted in your own backyard???
