AGAIN, OUR ANNIVERSARY GIFT TO EACH
OTHER...THE BEACH!  A VERY NEEDED TRIP
TO THE BEACH.  IT HAD ONLY BEEN EIGHT
DAYS AFTER THE THREE PLANES WERE
CRASHED KILLING AMERICANS.   REALLY,
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE I ACTUALLY
DID NOT FEEL SAFE.  THIS WAS DIFFERENT
THAN BEING HOME ALONE...THIS WAS...  
"MY WORLD".  SOMEONE HAD DESTROYED
WHAT BELONGED TO ME AS AN AMERICAN. 
APPROXIMATELY 3,000 INOCENT AMERICANS
LOST THEIR LIVES.  PEOPLE THAT HAD DONE
NO HARM TO THIS ENEMY.  GOING TO THE
BEACH HELPED THIS NUMBNESS AND SHOCK
OFSUCH A BRUTAL ATTACK OF AN ENEMY I
DID NOT KNOW.  SOMEHOW, I FELT FREE AND
SAFE AT THE BEACH...LIKE ENTERING ANOTHER
TIME.  EVEN THOUGH FLAGS HUNG AT HALF
MASS AND OUR AMERICAN FLAG WAS HUNG
EVERYWHERE I FELT SAFE HERE..  SIGNS
SAYING GOD BLESS AMERICA AND NEVER
FORGET, PEOPLE MADE THEIR STATEMENT. 
NO US AMERICANS;  WE WILL NOT FORGET, 
EITHER!!  EVEN THOUGHT THE BEACH WAS
EXCEPTIONALLY BEAUTIFUL!   THE ROCK JETTY
WAS FULL OF BIRDS.  THE WEATHER WAS
ABSOLUTELY WARM AND WONDERFUL.  THE
BEACHES WERE NOT CROWDED AT ALL.  THIS
TRIP, AS USUAL, HAD TO HAVE COME FROM
THE LORD.  I CAME AWAY BEATING HUBBY AT
CARDS...YES!  I HAD MY FILL OF ROYAL REDS.
AND MOST ASUREDLY CAME AWAY WITH A
FEW MORE POUNDS...HMMMMMMMM
HERSHEY'S BIG BLOCK.AND LAMBERT'S ROLLS. 
HUBBY BEAT ME AT PUT PUT.  HOW I HATED TO
LEAVE THIS PLACE...THE SOUNDS OF THE
SEAGULLS; WATCHING THE LITTLE SAND
PIPERS RUN THEIR LITTLE LEGS OFF AS YOU
TRY TO APPROACH THEM; SHINNING YOUR
FLASH LIGHT INTO THE OCEAN AT NIGHT;
GETTING TO SEE THE LITTLE CRABS EYES
LIGHT UP AS THEY COME IN WITH THE
WAVES; LISTENING TO THE SOUND OF THE
OCEAN AS YOU DRIFT OFF TO SLEEP;
WATCHING THE MAJECTIC PELICANS FLY
OVER HEAD AS YOU STAND ON YOUR
BALCONY, WALKING ON THE BEACH WITH
MY CUP OF COFFEE IN THE MORNINGS WITH
HUBBY,  AND OF COURSE GETTING TO EAT
YOUR FAVORITE FOOD AT YOUR FAVORTIE
RESTAURANTS.  ONE MUST REALIZE (AND I DO)
THAT THIS IS A PRECIOUS GIFT GIVEN BY A
WONDERFUL FATHER WHO WANTS US TO
KNOW HIM AND KNOW THAT THIS GIFT IS GIVEN
BY HIM JUST FOR US SO THAT OUR JOY MAY BE
FULL.  THANK YOU MY FATHER AND MY LORD
FOR ALLOWING ME TO KNOW YOU AND THE
PRECIOUS GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.   YES, WE
ARE IN HIS HANDS.
