“One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach. One can collect only a few, and they are more beautiful if they are few.” – Anne Morrow Lindbergh
We found this perfect, beautiful shell on an Anguilla beach on our honeymoon twenty-five years ago. It had washed up from the clear blue sea and rested underneath a coconut tree. Although we felt bad to remove it from its idyllic home, we knew that it would bring back so many wonderful memories for years to come if we brought it back to our home. Carefully wrapping and cushioning it in our suitcase, we treated it as a precious treasure, and the shell made it home, where it remains to this day. When I hold it up to my ear, I still hear the blue seas within it, and I remember. Love, beginnings, beauty, laughter.
Have a blessed day, and if you’re by the sea, enjoy the beautiful seashells that God has made. Another gift. Slainte, Lisa
Tomorrow I shall begin my search for the perfect shell. I already have the beautiful bride to go with it.
Now, how sweet is that? 🙂 Love it!
