Lonely Among Us

Micah carefully lifted the plastic bowl, revealing the perfectly molded dome to his sand fortress, leaving just a few sculpting details to put the finishing touches on it. Using a spoon, he carved windows and doors, a moat, some “battle damage” for character, and then sat between his father and sister to watch as the tide slowly rolled in. It was a lesson for Micah and Joy, their father wanted them to understand that everything is temporary, but that just because something is destroyed, or taken away, it doesn’t change what it meant while it was still there, that their memories can’t be taken away, their happiness can’t be destroyed.
