In the middle

It was a too long drive home after Christmas.  Two days in a too small car.  Two children who were too tired to have patience.  Two parents who were too exhausted from all the festivities.  But amidst the tears and tantrums when all sanity seems lost, I turn around and see this….

In the middle of the chaos two little hands reach out for each other.  Their hands are in the middle of this crazy experience together, separated only by a jumble of teddy dogs and colouring in books.  In the middle of counting kilometres and working out where the next toilet stop will be, for a brief moment we think about something else.  We stop, breathe and smile about what we find in the middle of it all.
