A metaphor. For a life beautiful. An image of love.
It was a sleepy Sunday afternoon and Chris and I had decided to lay down and take a short nap.
Legs intertwined. Head on shoulder. Heart relaxed. Bear comfortable.
As the time ticked, I daydreamed – unable to fall asleep. I took a moment to take in my surroundings. I looked down at Bear’s sleeping puppy face. I noted the laundry pile. I saw the tilting picture frames yet to be hung. And then, I looked up and heard Chris fast asleep rustling a lite rhythmic snore, as he does. And there I was, wide awake just hugging and observing my big life in a nap’s form. And in that moment, I realized …
My life is a sweet nap in the middle afternoon….to recharge.
My life is a landry pile … of adventures.
My life is a pile of frames…holding pictures of those adventures.
My life is a pair of loving legs intertwined…like Chris’ life and my life intertwined t0 provide a most comfortable napping space for a puppy.
My life is a heart relaxed. A smiling observer. A snoring sleep. A happy soul.
My life is a life beautiful.
I lay my head back down on Chris’ shoulder. I took a deep breathe and just enjoyed what I chose to see in that moment.
I chose to see a life full of LOVE.
Do you see what I see? Choose it.
