*Ok, this is probably dorky but I hope you like it  


I went down to the beach
sat in the sand
and like my life
I watched it slip through my hand

From no where
a little girl came zipping by
"Time to build a castle!"
she said in a joyous cry

She looked at me
and asked with a smile
if I would help her
for a little while

With patience and laughter
we built a castle made of sand
"I've never seen one finer
or quite so grand!"

I looked over to where she was
and no little girl did I see
But an Angel~MY Angel~
and she spoke these words to me............

"Life is what you make it,
and it can slip through your hand
or like our castle
with patience and laughter it can be grand!"

Dorky? Where on earth would you come to a conclusion like that? Far from Dorky! A meaningful message for I too would be one feeling the waves wash my life away. We all need a good reminder to kick us in the butt and get us started again in the right direction of life and thinking.

This does just that! Beautiful Sea!!

I must agree with the others.  This is not the least bit dorky.  It is a great inspiration and a reminder to us all how very precious every minute of each day is.  thanks for sharing this.

Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so;
