One week stacked right on top of the other, jam-packed with experiences that instantly made forever-memories. My mind scrambled to integrate activity and meaning. But my soul soaked up every glimmer of joy, surprise, fun and emotion there was to be had. The little ones awakened my senses to magic, so thick in the air it flushed our energy with a sheen of excitement. Every nuance of love filled my being with the hope that I could start over again. That I was better off than I thought. And life was pretty good in general.
