New Mermaid Sighting!

One of our recents cottage visitors who stayed at SeaGlass Cottage sent us their mermaid sighting! Here’s their report in their own words.

“I’ve been following the Mermaid sightings on your blog and thought you might like this photo from our visit to the Sea Glass. Our daughter picked up the mermaid doll on a daytrip to the SC aquarium in Charleston. She brought her Emily Windsnap book with her on our Tybee visit. If you’re not familiar with this tween book series, it’s about a 12 yr old who discovers she’s a mermaid. See, mermaids ARE everywhere!
We had an absolutely fantastic time and are already planning next year’s beach adventure! Thank you so very much for creating the perfect cottage get-aways for all all-too-busy family.”

Thank you Davis Family!

Farewell to Randy Pausch

I’m sure most of you have heard or seen Dr. Randy Pausch’s “The Last Lecture” either on You Tube, Oprah, Good Morning America or have purchased the book. Over 6 Million people have seen this on YouTube. This very inspirational man died recently of the Pancreatic cancer he was diagonosed with over a year ago. Living almost 6 months longer then most people who have his disese. Of all the quotes and stories from his lecture- there are three that really stayed with me.
“Brick walls are not there to keep us out. The Brick Walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The Brick Walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly. They are there to stop OTHER people.”
“Eeyore or Tigger- you can either face life with the joy and excitement of Tigger or the doom and gloom of Eeyore. You decide which way you to live your life.”
“Care about someone ‘s happiness more then you care about yourself. That’s why it took me 39 years to find that person and get married. “

If any of you have not seen or heard Randy’s “Last Lecture” please take the time to go to his website and do so. Inspirational isn’t a word big enough to do his talk justice…
