Today is Find Special Things On The Beach Day. At least for me. I came across Jennifer Nichole Wells Today Is… posts and loved the idea. Why not making every day a “holiday”.

As I said, today is Find Special Things On The Beach Day in my home. After the rain over the last couple of days it was a beautiful little surprise to see the sun out. So I took one of the dogs and the boys (my son and his best friend) and took them all for a walk along the beach. We found many special things. Things like stars in the sea, a special lion (or was it a hairy dog?), a mini rain forest on a rock, an interesting mix of colors and natures jewels. But I also discovered something else.
It’s fun to experiencing a walk with two friends who are so close for years now and spent many hours discovering the beach and the tide pools together. They took me back to the beginning of their friendship, days when they were so much younger. Little boys, you know. Today I watched two big boys and saw two little boys. Too similar were their reactions, the giggling and the team work from what it was years back. In a way today was not just about finding special things, but also about a lasting and special friendship.
