I love to take small moments and see the beauty in the world around me.
The other day I was waiting for Colin to finish at cubs, and he was dragging his feet. When James finally texted me through a friend to ask where I was, I insisted Colin get a move on. As I dragged him out of the building, I was caught between rushing to pick up James and the kids and being stopped in my tracks at the breathtaking shade of blue in the evening sky, just before all the light disappeared. The sky was actually glowing.
"Colin, let's go NOW. Hurry and get in the car. But first notice how amazing that shade of blue is in the sky!"
As we darted through the parking lot, we kept our eyes fixed on the liquid blue that blanketed the world beneath. We leapt in the car and I continued my lecture.
"Colin, you are going to have to apologize to your Dad for keeping him waiting."
"Yes, but if I had come when you first asked," Colin replied, "We would have missed that amazing sky."
