Wordless Wednesday: Birthday



Today would have been my mother's 76th birthday. She dearly loved the beach, the ocean, and when we were up at the Cape, I gathered pebbles and wrote her name on an unsullied stretch of smoothly packed sand. I imagine that it pleased her.

Love this and bet she would have too.

We have the spot on Assateague Island beach where we left some of Nanay's ashes.When we'd visit, I'd leave a seashell, the way you leave a stone on the headstone if you're Jewish. Hurricanes and nor'easters have moved the sand around a lot though, so we're no longer sure where the spot is...

It would please me.

This is beautiful. The picture. The sentiment. The thoughts. {{{hugs}}}
