MY SON IN THE SUN

I just caught sight of the most awesome image just now. I am going through some weird allergy seasonal thing so I wasn't feeling great this evening. I went into my room and booted up my laptop on top of my bed. Next to my bed there is a large window and I keep the blinds open during the daylight hours to suck up all of the light I possibly can. As I was typing away, I looked out the window at the block wall of the house next door and I saw a shadow on the wall of something moving up and down. I then realized that my son was in the back yard, out of sight, jumping on the trampoline. What I was witnessing was his image caught in the sunlight and cast upon the wall of the house next door. I watched this shadow for a long time, thinking to myself how lucky I am to be the mother of this fabulous human being, who so wants to help other people all the time.

His birthday was this past weekend and although things didn't go the way he had hoped in every direction, he still just said, "Oh, that's okay." He is so able to adjust to change and heartache and just let it be "okay." God, how I envy that. Gazing at his playful shadow having such a good time on the trampoline, I realized just how beautiful life can be and how we take so many things for granted. I decided then and there, that "things" just don't matter in life. The only thing that mattered to me at that moment, was the beautiful soul casting that wonderful slide show on the wall next door.
