Road Trip

We took a short road trip tonight. No moon. No stars. Just guitar playing the pace of midnight driving. Cityscape before and behind us. Both girls slept; tucked safely into car seats. The feel of family in the lull of constant moving.

I felt in love with my life, with my girls in the shadows of our car.

We arrived safely home. Both girls hung over shoulders like sagging sacks. We wrapped them in the darkness of their rooms.

Today I am sure: life is beautiful, God is good. A new year promises to be full of seemingly insignificant moments of grace. I am content.
