Twinkle, twinkle, little star…
I took a moment last night to look at the stars, and I realized something quite fascinating. They do, in fact, twinkle. Yes. I know this is an obvious statement, but when is the last time you noticed that the stars truly “twinkled”. You can look up at the clear night sky and see the stars, but to gaze at them and really notice the light flickering through the tapestry of the night is a whole different sensation.
I had to chuckle to myself as I remembered the old bedtime lullaby, and was slightly nostalgic of times when things were simpler. But for that moment, they were.
I am fortunate to have my family and a couple of close friends that remind me of the simpler things in life. Where laughter comes easy, and the love flows generously.
