Jack At Seven

Great day with Jack today
walking around town, shopping for school shoes, eating together,
wading in a river, hiking a trail
tonight, he's drifting off as we're watching
a movie on the couch, and he says
I fell asleep in your hand once


  1. I don't have adequate words for what a beautiful post this is, but I can't 'not' say anything. This is a wonderful time in his life (and yours.) The last phrase in italic, holds so much emotion and worlds of possibility.
    This piece is brief but it's so much. Really great. And I hope the little one gets to read it someday.

  2. Thanks, Kristine. Thanks for reading and commenting!
