olive you berry much

(from left to right: aunt jan, momma, aunt joni, sista - circa 2010)

do you ever have one of those moments where everything just sort of (for lack of better words) hits you. you sort of take a step back and realize "wow, i am lucky." and not in the arrogant way. in the way that you just cannot believe the blessings that have been placed within your life. you cannot find the words to express the gratitude, the thanks, towards those who have held your hand, who have wiped your tears, who have shared your joys, and have believed in you - all these years. for all of that crazy, crazy unconditional love (in all of its strangest forms). one of those moments where you become so overjoyed and overwhelmed with the way life is at that exact moment you might even shed a tear? have you ever had one of those moments?

"the Lord watch between me and thee, when we are absent one from another."
