Pools of light
It's also Thanksgiving here in Canada, and looking at my house tonight, filled with good people and good spirit, it dawns on me that we have many reasons to be thankful.
I took this picture earlier this evening. I had walked to the store to get some milk. An ordinary moment at the end an extraordinary day. I thought it was the kind of scene that Dahlia would appreciate, the kind of moody landscape that's all too often overlooked in the rush to complete errands and get home.
Our daughter's growing into a centred, grounded, confident person who doesn't miss details like this. She appreciates the small stuff, cares for those who can't care for themselves, and seems to convert stress into utter confidence. I'm already learning much from her.
Your turn: Why are life milestones so important to us?
