This was our view as we sat on a wall in Indianapolis, waited an hour for a burger and fries. As I caught up with a friend, I happened to glance back at the sky behind us and found it fading to pink and golden red.
Often the little moments slip by like the sun sinking down behind the city. I only saw it because I turned around.
I always want to have eyes to see the gifts in front of me. But I also want to remember the ones that might be lingering behind.
This weekend, may we remember to turn around.
Enjoy your weekend, friends. Here are a few good reads for along the way.
