Yesterday evening, after the rain stopped and the sun peeked out from behind the clouds, Thea and I headed out for a little walk. She brought her stroller and her baby, and of course, she wore her red rain boots (she put these on this morning as soon as she realized it was raining - right over her pajamas!).
Lately, I've caught myself feeling intense sadness, as these moments come and then pass. I find myself wanting to hold on tightly to each one, even as the next moments arrive bringing their own beauty and joy.
But right now, my heart is happy, and whispering, just be right here, right now.
