Sometimes a walk is just a walk.
But there are days -
when a walk is so very much more.
When stepping off the airplane is followed closely
by footsteps through a forest.
When that first hug after a year's absence is followed closely
by easy conversation
and a long wander to a waterfall...
When these ingredients are mixed all together
a walk is more than just a walk.
As July drew to a close, our Oregon adventure was just getting started. Soon after landing in Portland, we set off through a lush, mossy forest in search of a waterfall, and this photo practically took itself. My heart was so full as I watched my husband fall easily into step with his parents. I know how much this time with them means to him....we are so richly blessed with family to cherish. With family that cherishes us in return. I may not have seen any fairies or leprechauns in this greener than green, fanciful forest....but I did feel the magic.
