Farewell to Summer and an August Celebration


It isn't officially Fall here in Maine, but it certainly is feeling closer to it than it has in the last few weeks. I spent most of August travelling for the company. I worked in 4 different stores over the course of 5 weeks. It was interesting, at time exciting, and exhausting. I am very grateful for the opportunity, but I'm even more grateful that it's over. I did have a highlight in August that I haven't yet shared. My birthday. Most people shy away from it, but I actually like the idea of bringing family together. Hubby outdid himself this year and took me and the daughter child to lunch at Five Island Lobster Company.
 


 
It was a beautiful day befitting of a celebration and we delighted in the weather, the scenery and being together. The place was packed and while we waited for our order I took a lot of pictures with my birthday present... my new camera.
 


And then it happened... a sign from the Universe.
 

 
The lobster company gives out these holders in place of numbers for their orders. I nearly fell over when I saw ours. The names used are the boat names for the local lobstermen. Most wouldn't even understand the significance of this, but I knew it was something special. You see, my friend Marie had lost her brother not even a year before. And the Old Levi was his boat. I didn't know Henry, but I know Marie and that was enough. When you begin to question whether those that you love still linger after they pass I can assure you that they see you and know how you feel. This was Henry's way of getting a message to his family. Message received and delivered. And a lesson reinforced for me.
