beauty found

I went outside to Eric a few minutes ago to ask him something.

A surprising discover was made.
All of the snow was melted on our south-facing front lawn.

I paused on the mostly brown grass for a moment, and felt my feet sink into the softening earth.Aaaaah, I thought.

I came inside and a few minutes later my son ran past me, fast as lightning.
"Wait! Come back," I cried.
In question, I pulled him close and put my face close to the top of his head, inhaling deeply the scent of his hair.
I thought so, I said to myself. He smells of summer's sunshine...
