It was early December. My beloved sister was in the hospital and I had spent the night at my parents' home to be at her side as quickly as possible the next day.
Despite the deep shadows of The Abandoned--our family had experienced a miracle.
I caught these wonderful frosty blackberry leaves shining in the early morning sun. The whole world seemed different that day, when the sun spilled sparkled fingers of warmth through the crisp air.
