Twilight Time

This photo was taken last February; in these summer days our late afternoon dogpile-on-the-mom moments usually take place outside on the hammock in the lacy shade of what Luke calls our “little woods.” Sadly, there’s no camera-wielding fourth party around now to capture a more up-to-date version of the twilight snugglefest.

This is one of my very favorite times of the day. “Storytime!” I call, and kids and dogs come running. Brodie is content to sprawl nearby and listen, but Gericault likes to be in the middle of things. We pile up, and usually there’s some random, rambling conversation before we get around to opening our book du jour. The setting itself inspires a spirit of sharing, confiding, camaraderie: a drawing together of hearts. The very essence of simple everyday love.

Happy Love Thursday, everyone. May the everyday love brighten your path, and bring sweetness to all your twilights.
