Ally could see the colors in the sky after the brief rainstorm yesterday. She learned so much from Mason. He could see a rainbow when there was none. He knew when I needed a smile. He taught Ally laughter. Yesterday, the gray clouds hung. Ally put me back on track; "Mom, I had a dream last night I was flying with underwear on my head and eating Kit-Kats"
She keeps me on my toes, " Mom, what are patios made out of?" (as she tapped the sidewalk) and why is it different color than the street?" Concrete is such a hard subject. But her inquisitive mind made my heart burst with a smile. She lights the fire inside. As we walked hand in hand on our way to have lunch with Maverick. I am so proud of Ally and Maverick.
There will always be a fire burning inside. We all have our own dreams and goals, desires to move ahead, make a difference, and spread random acts of kindness. Life is all about keeping our eyes wide open, catching a glimpse of the rainbow ahead, and savoring Kit-Kats in the middle of the night...
Here's to Mason and Harley for teaching us those precious moments. Why so many brave little souls? God knows my anger. I pray for understanding....for unanswered prayers... from a mind running in circles.
|To infinity and beyond..|
