Family!

What a concept.

We spend our days running to and fro
fixing, getting, making, ya know
trying to reach the pinnacle....
the top...capture the brass ring!

And then
for just a tiny fraction of a second,
a glimpse of eternal joy, happiness,
and composed chaos
finds it's way into our homes
disguised as sticky hands or muddy toes
and musical laughter

In that brief moment
we see the truth,
the reality of our purpose

and it is
FAMILY!

sometimes we are blessed to
have the opportunity to
unite
to be one
to share the love,
the joy,
the frustration

I am thankful for the love
that enters the room with
every 3 year old or
every 10 year old
or every 13 year old.
Their light is abundant
and I am shown the true meaning
of joy!

We are the luckiest ...
wouldn't you say?

And it all began with my Mr Darcy and me!
I love you Mr Darcy!
I love you Sissy, Ry-boy, Josephus, Nicodeem
I love you Sease, Tae, Anya, Faisy, Kader-monkey, Ky, Kaysia, Ty, Addie and Rodan.

My cup runneth oer'
