Sometimes there’s a moment

Back Alley Beauty

Back Alley Beauty

_

dusty, chilly walk down the gravel lane

green window frames on the neighbours’ fence

a moment to stop and breathe

_

a day of cleaning and errands

a card game with the kids

a moment to stop and smile

_

looking for a fortune in craft supplies

the thrift store has glitter, ribbon and candles

a moment to stop and be thankful

_

children loud and raucous

drawings and paper air planes

a moment to stop and be alive

    I love walking through thrift stores and admiring the tacky Christmas decorations. They comfort me and make me think of grandmothers.
