{this moment}


{this moment} – A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

inspired by soulemama



This week was made a bit more challenging because Rich was on a business trip.  Bedtimes can be chaotic, and as I was putting Seth to bed I asked David to take Sarah’s blanket in to her.  When I was ready to turn off the lights, I found Davy IN the crib, reading a book to his little sister.  I stood, watching the love, with my hand on my heart (then ran to get the camera).  He read her one more, and when he was done, he turned the light off and came downstairs looking quite satisfied.  I think it made him feel good to be a blessing and to make someone else’s bedtime a lot more happy.
