a little glitter to start your week...

Yesterday was a gift.
We were granted a 50 degree day right smack dab in the middle of January.
My 3 boys and I headed to Napatree Beach in Rhode Island to take a hike, explore, find treasures and watch the glitter dance on top of the water.

As I watched the Monster and his brother (with a tail) bound ahead on the secluded beach, I was reminded of how truly lucky we are..

Lucky that we get to live by the water..
Lucky that we have each other..
Lucky that the Monster gets to grow up in a world where he knows 
no such difference in race, creed, color or sex.
Lucky that color only adds beauty to this world..
Lucky that girls and Moms can be AND do anything..

It may be 45 years since the passing of Martin Luther King
I see change..
I see it in the Monster's eyes..
I see it in the way he is with others..

So I thank you Dr. King...
Just so you know...
You are the glitter that dances on the water
allowing beauty and love to enter our hearts..


  1. Yay for a little warmth in the weather! ;)

  2. This is such a beautiful post–so delighted yesterday was filled with the best kind of glitter.
