just kidding i have no idea what an ode is…
to the ones who hold my heart, the keepers of my love. to the ones with twinkle toes and ringlets that are all but one far too gone. holding tiny hands that grow much too fast. with big eyes and sweet smiles. the years gone by. the days a breath. the memories a whisper.
to learn from.
to make me who i am today. this day. this beautiful day. i wonder at God’s amazing, miraculous powers at the children who chose me. how can it be? dreams come true are these three.
a snapshot in time.
not of the staged sort, nor fancy or pretentious.
just a quick pic and i am struck utterly speechless, reverently beholden.
