From here on out and for all future days, I decided to "never miss seeing the moon again."
It was a good decision. Now when the moon is there and visible, I say "hello!" It doesn't take long, but the sense of wonder it brings to my own small world is long lasting.
It wasn't long before I began to pass along this new thought to my family as well, and I think it's taking hold. Sometimes one of the boys will text me to say, "Quick! Go outside and look at the moon!"
I consider that a badge to wear proudly.
It's a funny thing about us humans. We bury our hearts and heads within a six or seven foot layer of air near the ground, never looking up, while the whole expanse of eternity hovers above us, dancing and singing.
I can't let that kind of party go on without me anymore.
