Well Said: The Postcard


"The island has a way of calling one back when it's time.
Come home. I have missed you, dear."

I pressed the postcard to my chest and exhaled deeply.
Violets of March by Sarah Jio

  33. The islands, as a whole, hold so many great memories for me and my family. (eg: Caymans, Cozumel, Roatan). When the kids were old enough, we all were certified for scuba diving. We spend my daughter's soph, jr and senior year summers vacationing in the tropics.

    Great quote, brought back some happy memmories. :-)
