The Difference a Few Seconds Can Make

There are moments when I look at baby Jonas with his wide-eyed wonder or his happy dream face and I get lost. For a few seconds there is nothing else. No people, no world, no clutter, no responsibilities, no worries. There is only him and me. Only infinite possibility. Only here and now.

In these few seconds I can't imagine being anywhere else. My stomach fills with butterflies, my heart with joy. Those few seconds make sleepless nights and fussy spells a distant memory. Those few seconds bring only hope, dreams, wishes, and wonder.

How lucky I am for moments like these.
