I can't believe those eyes. They are so excited. We are at the Theaters, her fingers are literally dripping with butter from the popcorn and she leans over to her brother and whispers..."I think someone needs to press play". More popcorn tumble to her lap. Older and wiser Deacon carefully explains to his sister that the Theaters are different than watching a movie at home. They continue to whisper back and forth, and I look across the seats to my Daylan. I wished I had my camera with me. The light bouncing off the curves of their faces, I love moments like these. Aubrie interrupts my thought as a fist full of glistening popcorn is very generously being offered. How can I decline?
This year I hope to have more patience with those sweet ones of mine. So when 5:00am rolls around and Deacon is eager to start the day, I can deal. I hope to make meal plans at the beginning of each week instead of 15 minutes before we all want to eat...that's a start to the newer better me.
Happy New Years!
Love the Langs.
