Every time I'm home in the summer and fall, my dad builds a fire in the fire pit and we all sit around and listen to the Horse Whisperer soundtrack (which is an amazing album for any chill summer nights). This is honestly one of my absolute favorite things we do as a family. We don't talk much (which you know is incredibly difficult for me...), we dont need to, we simply sit and enjoy one another's presence.
I never want to take these moments for granted. I want to always remember what a blessing it is to sit with those that consistently love and accept me, and just be.
The embers are different each time but their purpose is always the same, they bring us all together from our own worlds for a while.
