Did you ever really think about running? I never did until Lillian. I never thought about stretching one foot in front of the other, movement to get from one place to another in the quickest time. Four years three I think she ran. Truly ran. Almost head long into the garage door, unsteady, head bent over, chest way ahead of that little body, but running. Two feet to the gate. I felt my heart swell, a smile creeping over my entire being. Lighthearted. Like getting my breath after being underwater too long. Wish I'd had a camera going. Running. And then tears.
