Living Like Sea Glass in Stormy Water

I hear it all the time, “I don’t know how you do it.”

Or I get asked, “How DO you do it?”

Do what?


I just do…or I don’t…depends on how you look at it.

Have you ever been to the beach?

Have you ever been playing in the waves and found yourself knocked off your feet by a really big one?

You’re head over heels…




Round and round…

Not knowing which way is up.

Your head is above water for a second…gasp.

You think you’ve got it…feet on the ground…NOPE!!

There you go, rolling again, and again…

You get it? Been there?

You finally drag yourself to shore…

Saltwater in the nose…

Scraped knees…

Bleeding elbows…

You look like you’ve been dragged behind a truck.

In the grand scheme of life, it’s just a moment. It’s a very scary, life jarring moment…I’ll give you that…but the moment…the wondering if you’re ever going to make it out alive moment…it can feel like a lifetime.

It’s not a lifetime. It really is just a moment. I live my day with a lot of those.
