A moment.

I wrote this on November 8th and never posted it.  I guess it got caught in my drafts. What a special moment this was :)

We were eating dinner at the table tonight while music was playing.

Engrossed in my own thoughts, I didn't realize what song was on.  I stood up to return a text and BBZ jumped up too.  He said with an incredible amount of exuberance, "dance with me, mommy!"

On the stereo was Ripple, which was N and my wedding song.  BBZ and I danced and the rest of the world melted away.  That's two times today that music rescued me.

Never has he asked me to dance with him like that.  I was distracted and immersed in my own world, and just like that, he pulled me out and into a beautiful moment.

When words leave off, music begins. ~Heinrich Heine
