Little Moments No. 1

The alarm goes off at just past five

I don’t move

I can’t

It’s too early

My husband gets ready for work

He gives me a kiss goodbye

I attempt to sleep just a little longer

I open my eyes

Darn it

Now I really need to get up

The girls are sleeping so soundly that I almost hate to disturb them

Begrudgingly, they get ready for school




Backpacks on

Head out the door

A gentle breeze welcomes us on our walk

The youngest leaves my side and hurries to catch up with her sister

She slowly reaches out her hand

Her sister accepts without hesitation

The warm sun peeks through the trees

Perfectly framing my mental photograph
