To the Gulf – From A Sister Coast

To the Gulf – From A Sister Coast

The coast is our playground.  We are one of the blessed few who live within minutes of a shoreline.  No major planning needed. At a moment’s notice, we can jump shoeless into our van with the stashed bag of sand toys in the back and head to the edge of the world. There’s something transcendent that happens when you stand where land meets water.  For me, I feel like I am meeting my Maker.

I’m not sure of the exact time he left, but I can’t find him anywhere. Maybe if I describe him, you can tell me if you’ve seen him around. Eleven years ago, my sweet boy entered this world. After 12 hours of labor and 4 strong pushes, he single-handedly changed my world forever. He made me a mother and my life has never been the same since. Those early days together were certainly no picnic. The transition to motherhood was...
