On a late summer morning, as the sun streamed through the window, I sat at my desk and stopped for a moment. I heard a radio blasting a popular song through the hallway, muffled sounds of my daughter talking on her cell phone in her bedroom, the washing machine rumbling in the laundry room.

The sounds of an ordinary morning made a catch in my heart. I knew it wasn’t going to last. Change is around the corner. My daughter will be leaving for college soon and those noises will move with her.

It was just that for one moment, I stopped, paused, and really soaked up the sweet ordinariness of family life.

Too rare, too rare.
