My Norman Rockwell Moment

As you may know, I live on a dirt road. The other afternoon, I pulled into my road and so happily saw my son walking Daisy in the scrub brush on the side of the road. I pulled up, opened the passenger side window and greeted him. Per usual, he gave me his big, angelic smile. After exchanging a few words, I pulled away towards our house and when I looked in my rear view mirror, my breath was taken away. As fast as they could, he and Daisy were galloping behind my car trying to catch me. It was an image from a Norman Rockwell cover. Wait - isn't that ME running after Daisy? You know - my dog who chews EVERYTHING and won't COME???!!! The joy I took from this image is indescribable and is imprinted in my mind forever. I love that kid...
