One of the things being away for a few days in Ireland allowed us to do was to simply step back and take a deep breath. Life for us was extremely hectic for our family the last 6 months. As I mentioned in a previous post, the weather during our time on the west coast of Ireland wasn’t really suitable for getting out very much. However, there were a couple of opportunities that we took advantage of. One of those opportunities was to go and watch the sunset along the ocean. This photo is extremely representative of our time away. It was an opportunity to stand still and enjoy the moment.
