just one day

A new feature - just one day. A little phrase, with two vastly different meanings.

Just one day - one of many, nothing spectacular, everything as normal as can be.

Just one day - imagine if that's all we had?

I think about this a good amount, having a little boy who, had he been born a decade or two ago, would have had just one or two days on this Earth. I think often about the next surgery, the long hospital stay, and all of the question marks in our family's future. It makes me appreciate the little moments so much more.

I want snapshots of our days. With camera in hand, I am reminded of the common and comforting things that happen each day, as well as the novel and exciting. It seems my camera can be a tool of mindfulness.

In the present moment, there is beauty. This day is my life.

I would love it if you join me. Share a link to your posts in the comments.
