PHOTO BOOTH: Hello. Good bye.

Four times these pieces have leaned against a wall waiting to welcome a new family member. When joyful butterflies blotted any threat of tears.

Today, I stood and thought of the weight of sleepy heads on my shoulder, koala bear legs wrapped around my hip, chubby toes curled inside footed jammies. And oh that sweet moment that started each day with outstretched arms over railings.

My tears are caught somewhere between the journey we're leaving behind and the one that lies ahead. 

And when they find me, I'll say good bye.
