In her right hand, mom held the umbrella and bundles of back to school items. Umbrella held high and slightly bent towards her little one, mom's left arm was wrapped tightly around him.
Mom seemed unaware that half of her was getting soaked in the downpour. Her only concern was focused on sheltering her child from the elements. It was a picture of love. Sadly, time and weather and the intimacy of the moment prohibited me from capturing it in a snapshot.
What a wonderful way to start the day! Witnessing and wondering about how love can shelter us. Thankful for the ones who have sheltered me, and thankful for the ones I'm blessed to shelter.
Who's sheltering you? A spouse, a child, a friend or family member? Dear Reader, I pray there is someone in your life who offers you shelter when you need it. Just as importantly, I hope there is also someone for you to shelter. Wouldn't the world be a little bit better if everyone had someone to shelter them?
