Stay with me

There are moments in life when i take notice.

i ought to do it more frequently.

Plodding along, i catch sight of something and…

Stop.

Acknowledge.

A perfect example was when i recently realized i had smile lines that didn’t go away when i stopped smiling.

When did that happen?

Today i had such a moment when it occurred to me that He had become part of my day in such a way that His absence made me thirst. The realization wasn’t scary but it was surprising. It sent me to a quiet place where i held His collar in His stead, circling it with my left hand… acknowledging to myself (and later to Him) the very real desire for connection.

When did that happen?
