We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in an ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

  20. I am sure you have a lovely home Denalee. The shells from Guam are so pretty. My mom and grandparents lived in Guam for a while. I always like to hear my mom tell stories about her time there.

    Thank you again so much for the invite last night. It was such a pleasure to finally talk to you. I am going to be looking on the website today and I will get back to you later this evening. I am really looking forward to speaking with you again!!!!!

    Oh and your son sounds like a great guy!

    Happy Friday

  24. I cannot believe how much beach glass you have found! Anytime I go to the beach I am on the search for beach glass. I barely ever find any. In college I would go out to the beaches a fun times a week for hours on a beach glass mission. Totally jealous of all of yours!

  27. I love your amazingly huge vase full of seaglass! I love collecting seaglass, it's so relaxing and like a treasure hunt - especially when you find special colours of glass i.e. royal blue or something awesome.

    How long did it take you to collect that much? It's amazing!

  43. I really like your blog! Thanks so much for your comment today. I think it's something most of us get confused about. But you're definitely so right about a lack of faith in ourselves keeping us from achieving great things. It's such a silly thing to not believe in yourself, isn't it? I need to get over that!

  44. Came over from a friend's blog, and I am glad I did. Now I see we have a few friends in common. Watched your little intro video thing and What a cool idea!

    As a guy that really doesn't care or think about hair much at all, I think that your hair looks so awesome short and silvery. In fact, I wouldn't mind in the least if my wife did the same.

    Great pics, btw.
