Miraculous Sight!

Tonight the lightening bugs were out. What a miraculous sight! There is something about it that brings back the sense of wonder I felt as a child, when we would catch them in our back yard, or the local park! The sense of delight as you chased them around the yard, trying to catch them! Now I don't try to catch them, but stand in just as much wonder and deep-felt joy as the flicker in and out of sight. There were a couple just outside where we met for knitting tonight, several on the way home, then Howard invited me to the back yard where we stood and watched with a shared delight.

Now if you could just get them to fly through the top of the house, to light your room. :)
