This was just after our daughter Jade was diagnosed with a heart defect. Thankfully she's fine, but at that time none of us knew whether she'd be ok, or need surgery soon, and just that moment of watching my mother in law hold her, illuminated by the sunlight, and having that moment of clarity of realizing just how fleeting and precious life is.
