Soul connections and my 2008 trip to California

Emotionally exhausted from work, the week at the beach was heaven – literally.

Walking on the shore……..   feeling the ocean air and sun on my skin……..  hearing the never ending sound of waves crashing …….

Yes – it was like being in heaven.

Kyle coming down to the beach house for three days made it even more special.   My best friend since 7th grade, it is hard to describe how much I love her and how close I feel to her.  Sharing her daughter’s wedding…..   sharing time at the beach…..

Yes – it was like being in heaven.

Spending time with Regina, Vince and Kuma (their beautiful Akita who passed away just a few days ago) was also very, very special.  Seeing old pictures she has, learning about my Dad being on one of the first Regis Philbin TV shows talking about being a single father raising children – was an amazing revelation.  I’d love to somehow get a transcript of that show.  My sister is a beautiful soul and her beauty is reflected in how she has lovingly decorated her beautiful home.

Yes – it was like being in heaven.

Spending time with Pat (Mark’s mom) was deeply moving.  At 78, she’s still the wonderful, loving mom I never had.  Spending time with her, sharing pictures and thoughts, and then hearing her say as she walked me to my car with her arm around me – “isn’t it nice to have someone to love” – touched me in a way words can’t express.

Yes – it was like being in heaven.
