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.

Into The Tunnel

We are well into week one of the wedding weeks. Monday we went around paying the bills and checking on the final arrangements. Tuesday we went to Boston to pick up the dresses. Needless to say that took all day. Today I got my workout in and then went to the marine store to buy the rope to make the aisle chair decorations. I spent the afternoon on that.

The groom arrived late morning and wasn’t here ten minutes before the two of them had their cooler packed and headed for the beach. I’m taking a moment to sit outside after dinner with a glass of wine. The day still isn’t over – my younger daughter and her friend will arrive from Boston later tonight.

It truly is like being in a tunnel. I can’t pay attention to anyone or anything outside this family right now. I can’t take time to sit and read and answer emails or do things for other people. My attention is needed here, and the few moments I do have in between are needed to take care of myself these two weeks. I’m trying hard to maintain my diet and exercise. I take moments like this one to sit quietly and reflect on what is taking place here. I want to experience every minute of it, so I’m being selfish to the rest of the world. Everyone who has already done this tells me it goes by in a flash and they hardly experienced it. I don’t want to do that. I’m not on the social media so much because those I truly care about are sitting right in front of me. They are going to get my full attention (even though driving to Boston yesterday my daughter could’ve used a bit less of my attention telling here where to go! Lol!)

And so, as wedding week one gets into full swing, I’m going to enjoy my time in the tunnel, and…I have written.
