The proverbial 'light at the end of the tunnel'

So life has been throwing fast balls recently and I just have to say I have been remiss in posting about those fast balls. I have found other things to do --on purpose-- than to photograph Brent's wrecked bike and helmet from being hit, while riding his bicycle to work, by an SUV. A week later, I found that naps provided me with the escape from posting about the loss of our dear sweet Red Dog from critical kidney failure.

However, today, a light shone brightly. Today was Lillie's first communion. Regardless of your personal spiritual/religious belief, you can still recognize a child's important religious milestone.

And Lillie's joy shined through all of the protocol and have-to-dos. Those few hours honestly put the past two weeks in some kind of perspective and allowed me to focus on the moment. Her moment.

I will post about the other events when I feel focused enough to do so. Until then, I will look at that first photo for a long time (click on the photo for a larger look). That little girl has something to do this lifetime. I can't wait to see what it is.
