The horizon lightening through hospital windows always signaled the end of another call night and the promise that at some point later that day, I would be able crawl into my bed.

The sky shifting colors when one of my kiddos was sick brought hope with it, even if there wasn’t anything different that I could do for them during the day, than I couldn’t in the darkness.

And in these quiet mornings in an anchorage, with a cup of coffee in hand, listening to the quiet breathing of my family in their cabins, looking out at the beauty of this place, time stands still for just a little bit.

Having this little corner of the world as our home base for a while has let us get to know its moods, its changing tides and light. It reminds me of one small part of why we chose this adventure of a lifetime for our family.DSC_2775
