Carol Moore's Mountain Moments for June 15, 2008 (Happy Father's Day)

Mountain Moments

What is a miracle?
I have been pondering this question for several days.
And today, father's day
a word dances around in my mind
The birth of a child, a bird, a butterfly
Mystery, joy, pain
Waking each morning
Thirty-one years ago, we became parents
The nine pound nine ounce son
Held gently in our arms
Ten fingers, ten toes
A miracle looking right into our faces
Understanding before the death of my father
The importance of saying I love you and
Holding your tongue
Watching our grandchild being born
Celebrating the ninetieth birthday of my father in law
Miracles are life
Each breath we take
Each moment we pause
Each flower that blooms
A butterfly landing in the palm of an outstretched hand
A father loving his children
Each day forever and always

Carol Ingram Moore
Take time to play, create, and have fun!
