Sometimes your best reflections are those you see in somebody’s eyes!
If you didn’t have your glasses yesterday, you still were able to feel the effects of the Total Solar Eclipse. The air grew thick and seemed to suck up the sound. Wind stilled, animals put their heads down, cows caught a cat nap, birds lost their tweets and humans got wiggy with boxes.
The Hirns, along with a couple hundred thousand others, hit the road to ‘totality’ with their special cardboard Solar Eclipse Glasses!
Political correctness was Gone with the Wind. People laid on the ground and took pictures of the sun putting their cheap plastic solar glasses on top of their cameras to protect their $800 smartphone sensors, while their own irreplaceable retinas were subjected to the rays. But don’t you wonder what the view of earth looked like from the throne of God? He had to love the part about everyone taking time out of their day to see His light show. Together.
Families and friends came out of their cubbies to be together, looked through home made solar viewing contraptions (Fruit Loop and Bisquick boxes) and in a single moment of time, nature took precedence over Pokemons.
Some of your most wonderful experiences can be remembered by seeing them through the eyes of those you love. Which is exactly why Ron and I chose to take our boys away from home to spend 180 days in the real world, seeing the wonders through the eyes of those we love: our children.
After all, aren’t the best memories just reflections?
The next Solar Eclipse will be in 2024, but don’t wait to make this your next big event. You have daily opportunities to see life through your kids eyes. Travel!!!
