Lesson Learned on Vacation – #BigHeartsWin

I was on vacation last week, at the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I had a lovely time with the family. (Thankfully, I didn’t read this article about what happens to whale urine until I returned home!)

Now that I’m back, I thought I’d impart one quick life lesson I learned on the sand.  You see, I made a heart for my daughter, here:

It was a lovely heart, and she literally stepped on it, leaving me feeling a bit sad, and the heart half destroyed. But, the next day, I made a bigger heart. And even though she still stepped on it, it was alright. Big hearts tend to be more resilient. And this time, she even helped me fix it. 🙂  So, just remember, big hearts are always better.

Have a great week.
