Sweet Triumph

Created in the image of God, his eyes focused on the fading shadows.  Just moments before, he was surrounded by a love he would never outgrow.  I continued to push the swing in motion. As my husband and son walked away, I realized how beautiful my life was. What a defining moment. Here was a child who unfolded the meaning of my family’s generation. There have been  many times when I felt I have failed, but looking through the eyes, heart and mind of my grandchild, I hadn’t. This is my greatest triumph.

Three generations of my family, you see.

    • 🙂 I like the humor in your comments. You sound like someone I would enjoy talking to face-to-face. Thanks so much for the “follow” and support. I look forward to being inspired by you! 🙂

      • Aawww…thanks for the compliments. Yeah, I used to be a sarcastic little cut-up when I was a teen. Now that I’m “all grown up,” I’m better at controlling the wacky sense of humor I inherited from my father. I really have to fight it sometimes! Lol 🙂

        I get the feeling from your blog that we could be “kindred spirits,” as Anne of Green Gables would say. It’s so interesting to meet new people, online or in person.

        • Kindred spirits!! Love Anne of Green Gables. My daughter and I used to watch it so one year, I bought the entire series for her as a gift. Oh to be able to think like Anne in our world today would be a true gift!😃
