She's going to kill me, but...
...I have to share this image of my wife. It's from our most recent trip to the beach, likely our last of the season. The day was almost done as she watched our munchkins enjoy their last few minutes of sandy playtime. I love this time because it's when I usually start to wonder about What It All Means.
As usual, I was taking obtrusive pictures of all of us. It's what I do! As this image loomed in the viewfinder, I stopped and stared at her, my finger resting on the shutter, but exerting no pressure on the little silver button. I felt lucky to be right there at that moment in time and space, watching her watch our children. I think it's a beautiful picture of a beautiful woman at an all-too-short magical point in time.
When our lawn is covered with snow this winter, I'll look back at this image and think how lucky I am to be able to witness tiny moments like this. Blessed only begins to describe the life I lead.
