A couple of weeks ago, the cattle returned to the pasture near our house.
Everything felt right with the world.

Yesterday, the cattle were grazing along with the gentle deer.
It was just too much.

I can’t explain why these images are so soothing.
Maybe it’s the demands of being a helper.  I enjoy the peace of this place.

Maybe it’s this journey with the silent companion.  Seeing familiar images, knowing that the world still carries on, is healing.
I suppose the why doesn’t matter.

The truth is that is brings comfort.
Just like seeing a little girl curled up on the couch with a book.  Or hearing a bigger girl sing in the shower.

Some days, I hold onto these moments tightly.
The simplicity of life is found in these moments.

At times, life is full of complications and heartache.
It’s nice to find this quiet joy.
