Mercy

I had a completely different photograph to share but I was stunned and quite literally brought to tears today by this one of our daughter Margot taken yesterday.  These days are moving fast and we’re packing kids going to and fro, changing diapers, pouring juice, returning emails, trying to stay afloat on the currents of social media, trying to save that dollar, trying to get healthier or trying not to get worse, trying to stay inspired, trying to do our best and sometimes just trying to do what we can, just trying.  And then I look into these eyes and they feel like mercy to me; like the sun rising and what was pressing not so pressing now.  Sweet perspective is one of the many gifts of children. Thank you beautiful Margot for helping dad step out of the whirlwind and find his footing again.
