An Ordinary Evening

To spend the evening in the presence of family,
lounging in the midst of familiar noises,
laughter of children playing,
the sound of the beloved reading,
the littlest one going off in search of her bells.

These moments make holy the life I live.
And years later, reading my journal entry
of this night like any other night from long ago,
I am there, breathe into memory, and smile.
