I watched my entire family running with our new puppy at Buffumville lake today. This unfolded in a whirlwind of clumsy puppy paws, unfiltered laughter from both girls, the giggles of a teenage boy and the look of true joy on the face of my husband, a look unfettered by the recent events in our lives. After everything settled down, I spent some time down at the edge of the lake, Maddy took off her pants and splashed around with Vera while I gazed at the surface of the water. There was such a light wind, but it carried with it enough energy to stir the surface of the water such that the sun would only reflect off the tiniest little waves. Today is beautiful, today is worth living over and over again.
