A Slice of Time

A slice of life…..This afternoon, I watched from the upstairs window while my daughter, her husband, and four kids were outside loading the car for a trip to Magic Mountain.

It seemed so chaotic, with kids going the wrong way, stroller and gear on the sidewalk, etc.

I thought about how much work is involved even getting ready to go somewhere.

But then, as I watched, their father held the three older kids up one at a time so each could draw a smiley face in the dirt on the back window.

It melted my heart.  It rained tonight, and the smiley faces are gone.

The memories will last a little longer.

A Slice of Time

Smiley face drawn in dirty car window, shallow depth of field. Drawn eyes and smiling mouth.
