I am blessed to live on beautiful Cape Cod, where the magic of the ocean is with me every day. I never take for granted how fortunate I am. I love to go beachcombing for treasures, and every time I do, I learn new “Lessons from the Shore”.
With the arrival of September, comes the feel and the smell of crisp, autumn air, surely a time for new beginnings. I have tucked summer’s precious memories into photo albums and into the deepest recesses of my heart. Now, I look forward to what lies ahead.
One of my favorite treasures from the shore is seaglass… glass that once started out whole and perfect… perhaps as part of a bottle… jar… or vase…pieces that have been pounded by the waves over the years… their edges made smooth over time… pieces that have become even more meaningful and valuable with each passing day.
I learn much from my treasured seaglass. I learn that I, too, become far wiser… more “polished” and “valuable” over the years from all of life’s storms. I, too, become more special and beautiful as I age. May I truly believe that… and embrace that… as I look forward to another season…
another “New Beginning”.
