Hailees Daily Dose

Once, when my kids were all very young, we had had been couped up for what seemed an eternity. I decided that we needed a pick me up. I bought a bunch of cheap dollar store goods like beach balls and we put on our summer clothes then had a beach day in January. There was 2 feet of snow out and there we were….Shades on, Beach Boys on the stereo, we were table surfing on the coffee table and beach balls flying everywhere. It was a day that one could not easily forget. I have often let myself forget that moment and fall into to the dark. We need to use our best memories to keep us out of the dark. It serves as a reminder that the dark doesn’t have to be. On those days, have a beach party. Table surf. Put your sunglasses on and turn that music up! It will awaken your heart and make your soul sing. Life is a beautiful thing. Live it to the ends of the earth. ❤️
