Precious moments

Right before the kids were to go back with their mom Sunday, we sat together on my parents’ couch. Brandon, to my right, sitting right next to me with my arm around him and his leaning on me. Alexander, sitting on my left leg with my arm around him, resting his head on my shoulder.

They usually don’t stay still long enough for more than a few seconds of hugging, but for a few precious minutes – that seemed like moments – the Knemeyer men sat there together.

Life passes so quickly, the relative volume of special moments is so, so small. This little moment, a trifle in reality, meant so much to me.
