But then one day you look back at all the little snapshots you’ve taken and you realize you’re living a beautiful life. Yes, there is a whole lot of mundane and pouting in between the smiles and silly faces but the sum of all the good brief little moments comes rushing into your heart and you feel a landslide of gratitude and joy for every.single.thing.
We have felt the joy of creating song and dance.
We have felt the joy of a comfortable old pair of red rain boots that go with absolutely everything, non-dependent upon the weather.
We have felt the joy of sunshine, blue skies, a breeze, snowcapped mountains, green grass, rocks, and water.
We have felt the joy of gaining knowledge and the confidence that comes with it. Also, the joy of discovering a new form of energy in order to control 80 twin galaxies.
We have felt the joy of covenant renewal between us and our Heavenly Father.
