The Beach Just Called…

and told me I am missing my therapy appointment…

I heart the beach!

Every year we take a couple trips to the beach….

our favorite “local” beach is Cannon Beach, OR….

the 3 hour drive doesn’t bother us…

because it is pure BLISS when we get there……

Once we step foot on that Oregon sand…

we all unwind, relax, and find complete ~ total peace with our Maker…

How can anyone not see clearly that God made this beautiful earth…

and everything and everyone in it??

Including Haystack Rock!

We all get a little giddy….

even Mr. McFunny relaxes….

hope he doesn’t mind me using this *ahem* embarrassing photo ….

what was he thinking….

Oh… right.       He wasn’t!

The beach has that affect on us!

I mean…

what else would possess my shy child to  pose like a little actress in the making?

Words can not describe …

the overwhelming sense of peace, joy and closeness to my Maker that I feel…

Have you ever heard the Hymn…

Jesus My Lord…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Have you seen Jesus my Lord
He’s here in plain view
Take a look open your eyes
He’ll show it to you

Have you ever stood at the ocean
With the white foam at your feet
Felt the endless thundering motion
Then I say you’ve seen Jesus my Lord

Standing at the ocean…

with the rolling waves at my feet…….

I can not help but Dwell on Jesus…

Bliss!

Every year daddy helps the kidlings dig a giant hole…

I mean where are they going anyway?!

I guess it provides shelter from the cool winds…

and a wee break for the mommy…

Look how little my babies were back then!

Every year a dump truck comes with us…

I love dump trucks!

as little bear gets bigger….

so do his dump trucks…

YES… we wear Pajama’s to the beach…

don’t you??

Every year we stop in Seaside to ride the Carousel (spelling?)

Mr.McFunny gets the credit for the amazing photos in this post! =)

I miss the beach…

it provides FREE therapy!!

Be still the mommy’s heart…

and giggling mouth… (sh…)

The beach provides FREE smiles…

ALL . Day.  Long.

Since we live on a really tight budget…

we camp…

at this great little camp ground just a couple short blocks from the sand…

they have “pet” bunnies to feed…

and puddles to jump in…

if you are lucky ??  =)

In the past we have stayed in their cute little cabins…

but not this year folks…

NOW we have a tent…

what was I thinking???

Can you say double high air mattress??

Yep… this year I am bringing them…

I don’t care what anyone thinks!!

I wish the summer would hurry up and get here…

Because …

I NEED …

NEED…

FREE therapy …

Right now…

You are NOT GOING TO BELIEVE THIS….

All day yesterday Sister Kitty Nana was acting weird…

she “knew” something is not right with Nelly being gone and all…

She paced…

She spent a LOT of time in the window…

She cried…

She wouldn’t go outside for more than a couple minutes…

So I didn’t worry when I let her out at 10 pm to “potty”…

she always comes back in …

11 pm…nope..

12 am… not so much.

12:30 am… I am really tired dumb cat… come in!!!

12:45 am… with a HUGE pit in my stomach I went to bed…

she will come back in the morning…

she always does…

DAM cat!!  Did NOT come in this morning…

I can NOT take this…

they are sisters…

they rest together…

they play together…

they outdoor hunt together…

they window “hunt” together…

They joined our family together…

We found them at the shelter…

as  3 month old babies… rescued…

3 years ago…

they Stole my heart…

together!

I am pretty sure Nana thought about it all day…

and decided to go find Nelly…

Faithful sister kitty!

Dam her!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nelly Missing 3 nights… 2 1/2 days…

Nana  MIA just one night/day…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Be still my heart…

Trust…

Hope…

You See…..

Our family lost our 1st puppy this past July…

We bought Lewis in February of 2009

YES… he Looks A LOT like Merlin…

I guess I love black and white animals!

Lewis had a brain issue…

which we battled for 5 months..

before we had to put him down in July 2009…

right after we took him for his one and only trip to the beach…

Be still my aching heart…

I will tell you that story soon..

So you see… I can NOT…

I can not handle loosing another animal… I just can’t!

I wish I was at the Beach… and this was all just a dream…

Darn it All!!

(since I can’t go to the beach… blogging is my therapy!… thanks for reading… =) !!

It will be ok No.  Matter.  What.

I will find God in all this…

I will!

    Aww! I’m sure that Nana went to find Nelly! Hopefully they will come home today! Do you have them chipped? In case someone were to find them and take them to a shelter?

    I’m so sorry to hear about your kitty! I hope they both come home soon. And your puppy was adorable. He’ll always hold a special place in your heart.

    My hubby and I traveled the West Coast about 5 years ago and one of our stops was in Seaside! We loved the Oregon coast, it was beautiful! I would love to go back one day.

    Oh, not another one. Maybe they’ll both turn up. Your puppy was really cute. I have a thing for black and white animals, too…you know that, though. 🙂

    I have a picture of me by that same rock on Cannon beach. Many moons ago. Before kids. I was thin then.Many, many moons ago.

    Here’s hoping kitties come home soon.

    Cannon Beach is beautiful… my favorite Oregon beach tho, is Pacific City/Oceanside. Definitely would be further south than Cannon Beach, but if you and your husband ever want an AMAZING romantic B&B experience let me know, and I’ll give you the info for a great place there. 🙂 About the kitties… I’m so sorry, and I hope they come home soon. Are they chipped?!

    Now about the beach… those pictures were bliss. You all looked so happy:) I love that you camped out. What a perfect way to go.

    I have a secret…we are going to a beach very soon. It’s a lot more than 3 hours away. You can share in it with me via blogging:) Happy weekend to ya.

    Ugh!! That just makes my stomach hurt–I am so sorry! I am praying hard for those kitties…they are like family, I know! Loved your beach pictures–is it cool up there now? It is 85 degrees here during the day now.

    I miss the beach so much after leaving California. The people in the midwest call the lake the beach. Not the beach people, not the beach!
