Mary Anne Radmacher: You’ve got to come see this. Grab your camera.

I remember the night I was a guest in my good friend’s home.
Exhausted I had fallen early to bed. My shoulder was shaken. A gentle whisper came to my ear, “I know you’re tired, but you’ve got to come see this. Bring your camera. You’d be sorry to have missed this.” My hand fell heavily onto my camera and quietly up the stairs, I followed my friend.

On an air mattress in the middle of the living room floor was her daughter. Her arms intertwined with our good friend, an ailing black Labrador who was not well enough to make it upstairs. The little girl did not want the big dog to sleep alone. His paw rested over her palm as if they were holding hands. They were.

In your days – things like this happen to you. You get a tap, a nudge, a gentle shake and life whispers to you,
“I know you’re tired – but I don’t want you to miss this.”
Listen. And grab your camera!

- Mary Anne Radmacher
