I am on vacation with my family this week. We’ve had a bumpy start. Ada had the stomach flu and a fever. My brother came with a cold. My father caught one.
It’s been easy to see the beauty though. The warm wind and tropical air. The shining faces of my nieces. The celebration of my parents’ love. My daughter’s sleeping body, growing longer and leaner by the moment.
Sometimes the beauty is not as easy to find but I have learned it is always – always – there. Looking for it can make all the difference, especially when the world seems dark.
