lightness by kristin~mainemomma
lightness, a photo by kristin~mainemomma on Flickr.

today there was heavy news.
life does that.
good and the bad.
beginnings and endings.
i had found this shot in my archives about a week ago. when i opened it up i was struck with the extreme joy and excitement in casey's face. kids are pure emotion in every moment. i love that about them. whatever they are feeling is clearly evident on their tiny faces. so today as my heart is heavy and feeling far away, i needed to see the simple joy in casey's face.

sending lightness and love out to all of you.
maybe you need it today too.

Such a beautiful picture...anytime we see joy in our kids faces it usually washes away whatever heavieness we may have in our hearts. I wish you well and hope for more peace and happiness then the bad news!
