Five Minute Friday: Beautiful



Five Minute Friday

Beautiful.

In the ashes, beauty. In the stretch marks and tired eyes. In the dirt-filled fingernails and morning breath. Tantrums and tangles, tears and almost-didn't-make-it-tinkles.

Worn hands and chapped cheeks. Sweaty palms and soft baby bottoms. The blues and purples of new belly button cords, the blues and purples of childhood battles. The blues and purples of knobby veins in the forerunners of the family.

Beautiful moments and whispers and all of it is life.
