Gift

Allowing our son to sleep with us is a treat... for me.   I love listening to his sleep sounds, seeing his little body inhale and exhale, and feeling his warmth beside me.  I love opening my eyes and marvelling at this wonderful gift that God has entrusted to us: this cluster of cells that grew inside of me for 37 weeks, fed from me exclusively for 6 months, and now has the capacity to walk, talk, sing, dance, create, love, laugh, learn, and much much more.  What a miracle.
