another day

They can't all be perfect, these beautiful June days, can they...

We wake up to a delightfully crisp morning -- the kind that really gets you out of bed with a smile.

A walk through the gardens...

A lovely breakfast...

And soon after, someone close to me gets some sad news and for the rest of the day my thoughts are with her.

Snowdrop, of course, doesn't quite get that Gaga's mood has shifted somewhat. She is all smiles leaving school...

All smiles on the playground...

Chatting up a storm, laughing, climbing, swinging, spinning...

All smiles at the farmhouse, coloring fiercely (she is so adept at this that sometimes you wonder if it's ahah's crayon mark or her own), playing with her babies.

That girl can make the most sour moment sweet. Still, it can't be all smiles every minute of every day, can it? Sometimes, you have to pause and take on the sadness of someone and keep it, at least for a while, as your own.
