Yesterday I went to the neighborhood park. It had been awhile since we had gone. School, appointments, the little things that make the days busy kept us from going. Such a simple pleasure, deferred.
After learning of the loss of little Madeline Alice, I remembered that life should not be deferred. Our neighborhood park was one of Maddie’s favorites, for the swings and the duck pond. Yesterday there were ducklings. I gave the fruit babies their first swing ride. I thought of Maddie and her loving parents. I hoped they would find peace and gave thanks for the beauty in my life.
Thank you Maddie.
