Sunlight, Glitter, and Grace

Yesterday we had some glorious golden autumn sun streaming in the bedroom in the late afternoon.  It was striking my dresser and mirror and bouncing around the room.

The jewelry that hangs in a messy mass on the hook was glittering and glowing in the light.  Pearls, crystals, silver, murano glass, all reflecting shards of light.

 And just like Mom's story of grace...it also hit my remembrance photo of my father and my cousin.  Now gone from this world and into whatever next world you believe in.


It was nice to pause and notice it all in the quiet of an autumn afternoon.
