Gazing at these pictures, I had an epiphany.

I eyed a daughter who suddenly noticed she was being watched. When that realization set in, she sprinted passionately to the one she loved.

Yet I also saw myself, and how I desire to run the race.

This race called LIFE!

So often I get sidetracked from what is truly important.

I lose my perspective, and begin to pursue things that I am not called to do.
Good things, honorable things, but just not the best things for this season of life.

I might even close my eyes to issues around me,and pretend that everything is alright.
“How are you?”
“Just fine, thanks, and you?”
Do I truly want to become vulnerable by taking off that “mask” we women are such masters at wearing?
