Light: 12/17/14


Today's light: sitting on the floor of my daughters' room, just being here as they fall asleep. It's been a long daynot terrible, but not easy, either. Being there was the best I had, but there was a sacredness to it.

  1. Love the picture and your words. (I'm loving all your light posts, I just have been bad about commenting...)

    "Being there was the best I had, but there was a sacredness to it." That strikes me as maybe not even needing the 'but' I wonder how often our being there is the sacredness. I think of how often a sleepy Liam asks, "Mommy, will you just stay with me a little bit?" Just being there is so much more than the word 'just' conveys. Maybe our presence is the lion's share of loving someone. Good thing for me to think about...

    1. There are many, many times I find myself hoping our presence is the lion's share of loving someone. Especially the days when it is so clear we are all just bumbling around, doing our best (mostly) but fumbling a fair amount. Thank you for your wise insights, Janice.
