Monday is my Muse 8-01

Unexpected Moments

A beautiful cardinal
Landing in the patio
Just out of reach,
But well within view

The smile of a child
In the doorway
Instead of slumber
In the bed

The light breeze
Felt at the top of a hill
On a hot summer day
Among the relaxing family

A few softly spoken words
Ending a terse conversation
Demonstrating understanding
And forgiveness. (*)

Unexpected moments
Of wonder
Of humor
Of relief
Of grace

These are the moments
For which life is made.

(*) Just a note, this stanza isn't about Drew. It's about Ben. When we really have to get on to him, now he'll say, "Okay. It's alright." in a tiny little voice. It's super cute!
