Did You Ever?

Did you ever have a moment when the world stood still, time stopped, and you witnessed something that took your breath away?

Did you ever have a moment that you wish you could have seen through a crystal ball years ago, when hope was lost, and pain was great?

Did you ever have a moment where your past and your future actually touched, and became entwined?

Did you ever have a moment that moved you deep down in your soul in a way that couldn't possibly be expressed with words alone?

I did, today.

This was that moment...

Jen - I am BAWLING! That is the most beautiful picture I have seen in a very long time. I can't even imagine the thoughts that you must have in terms of losing Doug and having Jim and Dylan - they are all very lucky men.

I just gasped a little gasp.

Wow....What a capture.

Wish I could say more. But I can't. It would sound way lame.

I can only imagine what all of your emotions are and were, Jen. Only imagine...

I always marvel that you have been through so much in your life and have come out of it so strong and witty and compassionate.

Wow! I immediately knew what that was when I saw it. Heartwrenching and bittersweet. It's a beautiful shot. What a great picture to bring to mind when one finds oneself in a hopeless horrible moment. There is hope, if only we can see it.
