On the Beach with Mom

Today is a good day.

No work. No email. No social media.

Just sitting on a beach, reading a book next to Mom.

I was going to split the day; working in the morning, then squeezing family-time in somehow.

But no.

When my mom is no longer here, when we can no longer laugh together, I will be sad.

But I will think back to this day, and I will smile.

Because today is a good day.
