Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

And Off We Go…

Yes, TWO posts in ONE day! I do make myself proud! 🙂
Riding back home on the red line to Braintree my daughter texts us “thank you for coming. It was so much fun!” I answer her, then I get to thinking how we came together for a brief few hours, and now we are on our way back to our separate lives.

That’s how it is with adult children. They are no longer at your breakfast table, but they are forever in your heart. It’s wonderful to watch them go out and make their way in the world, so independent and successful. I’m lucky. Both of my girls are settled and happy in professional careers of their own making.

It’s really nice how they make an effort to connect with us, and then text us thank you on our way home. They never fail to say “thank you”. Tonight I’m just full of gratitude for my kids, my husband, and my home on the ocean.

Boston was magical tonight. Walking the softly lit streets outside of Fenway, in the rain, was serene and beautiful. Now, on the train heading home, arriving at the ocean with its own quiet sound of the waves splashing on the shore will be just as magical in a different way. I’ll keep my window open just a crack so I can fall asleep to the sound of those waves.

And so, as another day has gone by, tonight I urge you to take note of the magic that surrounds you, wherever you are, and spend a minute or two in silent gratitude, and, again, I have written.


And Off We Go...
