What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories. ~George Eliot

Football equipment pick up means it is almost back-to-school time. Whew, that was a fast summer.

7:00am Lilah wakes me with a soft cry and we begin our routine. Morning routines are sacred, particularly summer morning routines that my kids and I set ourselves.  After breakfast, James bikes off to camp and I tuck Lilah into her stroller. It is hot already, but far from the oppressive afternoon heat. Today we race under a sprinkler as we start our walk. I check on Lilah, and she is smiling her quirky smile as a few sprinkler drops roll down her cheek. We are fortunate to have such good health (and good humor). The first of our walk is shady--the breeze feels fantastic.  As I push her up the long uphill stretch, I am struck by how remarkable the human body is. It is a miracle that six weeks after the trauma of giving birth here we are smiling, walking miles together, growing stronger every day. This is not the first time I have been blown away by human resilience, but it is the first time I have experienced this healing within my own body. The sun pours down on my shoulders. Lilah is covered by a canvas canopy, but I can hear her sweet cooing. It is a miracle that after only six weeks she can hold her head up in my lap, sit up in her bumbo chair, smile back at us, grab her stuffed animals, and fill our already full hearts. I can literally watch her soaking up the world behind her blue gray eyes. I feel like I have learned new lessons about humanity this summer. As we finish a 5K loop I appreciate this new understanding. Lilah has fallen into a daydreaming sleep. I lift her out of her stroller, her soft warm body melts into mine.
