Wednesday Moment . . .

I’ve mentioned it before, but I do love keeping a plastic camera filled with film on hand for little everyday moments.  The imperfect pictures come out looking like a memory feels, and the distance between capture and viewing is long enough to make each roll a sweet surprise.

 

This was a few months ago, and it was one of *those* days.  I was behind on my edits, the house was a disaster, they sky was dark, and my nerves were raw.  I whipped around in annoyance when Eva touched my leg, ready to snap.  She looked up at me with shinning eyes and said, “Mom, I just really want to love people, people I don’t even know.  The best thing I can think of is leaving lilacs by their door and running away.  Don’t you think that would be a good surprise?”  Being their mom is like that a lot . . . humbling . . . and magical.

Flowers and friends, the two just seem naturally to go together.
