PCB 2014, Last full day :(

As our vacation comes to a close, I can’t help but do some mourning.  I’m sad to go back to reality.  The cancer reality.  The chemo and the surgery and all the worry and nonsense that comes with this stupid disease.  For one week, I was able to mostly relax and not think about what we are fighting.  I was able to enjoy my husband, feeling mostly back to normal.  I got to see him enjoy himself and it felt as if nothing was wrong.  There is also something about the beach that is so soothing.  I can sit out there and watch the waves crash for hours.  Something about the vastness of the ocean makes me just sit in awe of our God.  How tiny we are and how BIG HE is.  And how He could love and care about each and every one of His children, my mind can’t even fathom it.  I don’t ever want to leave.

We started this morning by picking some shells to fill up a souvenir container and with some last pictures by the beach…





Some last hours at the pool…




It doesn’t get much better than this…

We went to dinner and one final stop at Alvin’s Island, and then we decided to go ahead and drive home tonight, because we were going to leave super early anyway.  But, before we could go, I had this great idea in mind.  I had bought some Chinese Lanterns so that each of us could make a wish and let them go on the beach.  Sounds awesome and Pinterest-y enough, right?

Wrong.  First of all, it was windy. Second of all, being that we are NON smokers, I didn’t even know how to use the lighter (dad helped. We apparently had it on low?).  Long story short, dad finally got it to light, the thing took off, but THEN!  It caught a gust of wind and went straight toward Pineapple Willy’s (a restaurant on the beach with outdoor seating on the pier) and the whole dang thing starting catching FIRE!!! 
I was FREAKING out!!  Finally, right before it got to the pier, it landed in the sand and someone kicked sand over it.  Thank God it was dark out!  HAHA

Circle of love! 

Until next time PCB, it’s been real…
