I'm sitting in my bedroom, piled up on the bed with MASH playing in the background... and my son piled up on the bed with me. I haven't quite wrapped my brain around that concept. I feel a little as if I'm in the middle of a dream...

Instead of working on the stack of 'thank you' notes looming over my life (though I've done a couple!), I've been ruminating over this little creature sleeping beside me. I love this little boy so much. Much more than he will ever know, I think. And much more than I ever thought was possible.

And it astounds me.

Everything in my life now seems to be measured with a whole new yardstick. Stuff that I once thought was so very important now seems of so little matter. I am the happiest and most contented I have ever been in my life... but, at the same time, it's a bit disconcerting, this axis tilt my world has taken. But it's a good thing... a scary, one step at a time kinda of good thing. And I am so overwhelmed with thankfulness that I get to walk this journey.

And now my sweet daughter, you finally know & understand how I feel about you.....and how very much I've loved you from the 1st time I laid eyes on you. It's beyond explanation. A child truly is "a gift from God."
