Yesterday, my friend Tracy
brought her beautiful baby girl over
to play with my beautiful baby boy.
At one point,
they both crawled over
to the back screen door
and sat there together,
watching the world go by.
I was studying their little shadows
when they reached out
to one another,
their tiny fingers outstretched,
their litte hearts open wide.
It was such a sweet moment,
it took my breath away.
After all,
everybody in the whole wide world,
big or small,
boy or girl,
young or old,
needs a hand to hold.
