Going through the kids’ photos from the trip this summer and rediscovering it through their eyes has been incredible. I found this one the other day. Sandra knows her way around Picassa and had decided that it looked better black and white. It takes my breath away how she has allowed me to see myself doing something that was so vital to the whole experience, the window she gave me on my own memories. And, as a mother, the opportunity to see what she sees of me.
“We have the opportunity to model for our children that art both great and small is happening all around us all the time, and that these transcendent, transitional moments of grace are to be captured in the soul. As fortune favors the prepared, creating a life that allows for effervescent moments to be experienced, I think, is something that is a calling.” Laureen Hudson
Stop for a moment and see the daily, common routine of your lives through the eyes of your children. What would they say of its texture and the presence of effervescent moments of playfulness and beauty?
