a gift.

Yesterday was a good day.

I caught up on a little work, and then a little getting ready for Christmas, and even though I was planning to do a whole lot more getting ready for Christmas, my husband said, “Do you want to go for a walk?”

I might have said no, usually, on a day when so much needs to be done,
I would have.

But for some reason, I said yes. I put on my face mask and my hat and my long underwear and my my purple boots, and I looked ridiculous,
and off we went.

Along the way I took photos and we chattted and my husband offered suggestions for photos, which made me smile.

This is new for him.

Down at the end of the road, in a neighbor’s yard, I found this little scene.
It’s not perfect, the O is falling over. But I’ll take it.

When we got home, my husband and I cooked dinner together
and then we sat in front of the fire and the Christmas tree
with all the other lights off, and it was perfect.

It was a moment.
And somehow, we were both there
at the exact same time.

    *happiness* This sounds like something that would happen to my husband and I. I’m so glad he encourages your photography so actively–Sean does that for me, and it’s so wonderful. And I’m glad you were able to share that walk, that moment.
