It is Friday again, a week has passed quickly and I am once again, courtesy of VikLit's thoughtfulness and that of the others on this blog hop, thinking of reasons to count my blessings and smile.

I'm grateful for memories of:
colorful floats
sand all over my feet
squabbling in the car
riding with my head out the window
catching waves as they come in
watching my baby brother toddle to the edge of the wave and plunk himself down, diaper and all
swimming all day
having suntan lotion smeared over my back
listening to the seagulls

All the sounds that, to me, signified Saturday in the summer.  Since my family was living in Hawaii at the time I am remembering, the ocean is the color of an opal...


We all need to count our blessings and celebrate our achievements or joys - why don't you join us?  Here's the linky - sign on!
