The time had finally come. I'd spent the last 4 days at the monastery where my dearest friend lives. It was a wonderful visit. Time to connect, time to be alone, time to be with God. But it was time to say good-bye. My shuttle was coming at 7:30. Mass was at 7:15. So we were meeting at the "turn" at 7:00 for a final hug. Don't know when we'll be together next; there's over a thousand miles between us.
As I left my room, I saw these guys across the front lawn. Last year there were deer all over. I half expected one to wander into the chapel one afternoon, but this year - not so much. It's too hot. But this morning, it was like a parting gift. I ran back in to get my camera. Not the greatest picture quality, but hopefully you get the idea.
Linking this to Jenny's Blog and Sixty Seconds on Tuesday. Take a minute to capture something ordinary and see it as extraordinary. (If you're visiting Just a Minute, you might enjoy some of my posts from recent days.)
