His strong hand is intertwined with mine as we walk barefoot in the warm sand. The waves are crashing loudly against the coastline. I pull a wisp of hair from my cheek that the wind keeps playfully returning to the exact same location. The sun is going down and we have been playing all day on a deserted beach. We are quiet, but our Inner Beings are communicating on a much deeper level. He stops, pulls me close, and says, “you are still the best thing that has ever happened to me.” I look into his eyes, knowing that I never get tired of hearing him say that, and can feel the truth of his words, but more importantly the magnitude at which he feels them. Everything about this handsome Being before me is a match to my Spirit and damn I crafted him well. Our unique partnership makes my life incredibly rich. Joyful tears run down my smiling cheek as my heart overflows with love and appreciation for this gift, which fulfills me in new ways every day. We embrace for what seems like a blissful eternity, blending in tingle inducing salty sunscreen kisses from time to time. Then we both laugh because we hear a parade of whales blowing water out of their blowholes in the distance as if on cue. We know that they are definitely celebrating this delicious moment with us.
We continue hand in hand along the beach as we get closer to our beautiful house just above the tide-line. We can see a warm glow coming from our living room and realize that it must be our dear friends who are coming to play for a week. We begin chatting about all the fun adventures we would like to take them on and are anticipating only the best. We are nearly back to the front door when we hear the squeal that announces their discovery of the carefully placed fake iguana in the bathroom. How abundant our lives are! We are blessed and we know it!
