Walking the Wall

Monday, May 11th, 2009

fog-fishing.jpgWe have the most beautiful shoreline here in North Wildwood.

I took my camera with me the other morning on my walk and tried to capture the beauty… the photos are beautiful but fail to emit the wonderful salty aroma, the quiet serenity, and the history and nostalgia that I feel when I’m on that wall…

as the light on Hereford Lighthouse turned around to shine on the foggy sea I thought of the years gone by when that inlet was bustling with activity… there were 100s of fishing boats docked there at one time before the inlet was dredged in 1953… and before that, there were many schooners that passed by the inlet… it was so dangerous, there were many shipwrecks right there over the years, Steve Murray (from the lighthouse) wrote a book about them, that is why the lighthouse was built there in 1874.

Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet.



The Sun will be shining in a Few More Days!

In a few more days the new SUN will be hot off the press!!

In a few more days my SON will be home for the summer!!!!!!!!!!

Yesterday my husband & I took our moms and my dad out for a delightful brunch at Sandbarrens and although it was special to spend the day with my own mother who is to me the greatest woman in the world, I was missing my son.

As I was in the buffet line I felt a hand on my shoulder and turned around and saw my son’s beautiful face … wow. What a surprise! words cannot explain the joy I felt at that moment! It was almost the same feeling I got when I saw his beautiful face for the first time when he was born.. I know every mom thinks her child is the most beautiful, but my son really is! :)

just the same…. words cannot explain the joy and satisfaction that comes with being a mother and watching her child grow up and learn to walk in truth and righteousness and integrity… I am truly truly blessed!

I love this quote:

You don’t really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around – and why his parents will always wave back. ~William D. Tammeus

I Love this picture of my son on one of his homecomings…. I am going to be so happy not to have to say good bye to him again for a while!
