Sacred in the Ordinary: Bonding Brothers

I am tempted to search for the extraordinary. I catch myself longing for the incredible. I fight the urge to notice the spectacular. In doing so, I risk missing the most extraordinary, incredible and spectacular of all... the sacred in the ordinary.

My Moment...

Our little guy entered our family and home in March. School was still in full force. It didn't allow for much time for the two boys to become acquainted with each other.

School starts again Monday. My biggest goal this summer was that the children have time to bond... particularly my teen son and the little guy. As I saw this scene I took a moment. I have noticed other times of these two together as well. I believe bonding is taking place.

What may seem like an ordinary moment became quite sacred for me. I am eager to watch these boys continue to grow together side by side and learn... from one another.

What moment did you notice this week?

  1. It's been a week of momentousness... school starting, clear scans, 2 year celebrations, in-laws arriving for a week to visit. I found myself forgetting to think about the little things.. and sacred in the ordinary. Then I went shopping with Bella and we talked and laughed and pretended and told stories, and I realized once again how valuable TIME is. :)

  2. I'm glad you saved that moment - it is just priceless.

  3. Ok you have me all in a puddle after melting with that beautiful photo. So glad you captured that moment.

  4. That is an absolutely incredible picture, right down to them wearing the same colors!

    Treasure it.

  5. That is such a sweet picture!


Thank you for taking a moment to stop and chat. I enjoy the presence of you!
