Word of the Day: Fleeting

Sunset in Festus, MO

“Sunsets, like childhood, are viewed with wonder not just because they are beautiful but because they are fleeting.”

The Gift, Richard Paul Evans

fleet·ing: adjective, defined as “lasting for a very short time.” Definition from Oxford Languages

My son is turning nine next week. His childhood, like a magnificent sunset, is glorious, vibrant, fun, and dissolving much quicker than I would like.

These pictures were taken outside of our home in Festus, MO last night. When my son and I saw the cloud clusters and array of colors, we dropped everything we were doing to go outside. We took turns being photographers and used different editing features to see how varied the photos could look. It was an unplanned, yet super special itty-bitty break in our evening.

Wishing you pauses in time where you can hold fleeting moments with intention and presence.
