Why does Rex wag his tail?
What is the squirrel saying, Mommy?
Blended with those, oh, so precious memories and giggles shared. Intertwined into my own private view of precious days and fleeting moments.
The nervous excitement of the very first day of school.
Beaming faces and little hands bearing creations of glue and determination.
While they welcome the new day and look to the future, this Mom takes just a bit of time, snuggling into the comfort of that favorite blanket, a favorite book nearby yet left unopened, to look through the autumn morning sun, beyond into the past.
