Me and mine

Standard

A couple of weeks ago, Gideon discovered his shadow.  We were walking side by side in the morning sunshine, when he started weaving this way and that.  The moment of recognition came quickly: “What’s that, Ima?”  I introduced him to his shadow and watched in delight as he tried to scoop it up, hug it, and race with it.  (Guess who won!)

That night at my spiritual direction group, I mentioned that encounter as a potential spiritual access point for me, and the group leader suggested I write a prayer or blessing about the moment.

Here’s my attempt:

Blessed the One who shows a boy his shadow.
Blessed the One who shows a mother her child.
Thanks and blessings to G-d, who divides and unites our selves.
