Behind the camera,
the woman who bathed them,
who washed and laid out their clothes,
who woke them and fed them and dressed them
this morning, who coordinated their shirts and found 
their shoes and positioned them in front of the celebratory
wall, who stood back and scanned every face and told them to 


So she could capture, 
in ten flashes or less, this moment
she had to fight for on the way to lunch
so they could look back, old, and remember 
their family so young, so that on his Father’s Day
timeline he could share this beautiful picture and say 

What an utter blessing
these children are to me!
So amazing and easy,
hardly any work at all.
