In January of 2014, I sat on the stones in the woods, came face to face with a raccoon in the tree and suddenly knew that I was pregnant again. In October of 2014, I sat on these stones in the woods awaiting the imminent arrival of my new baby boy. Today, I sit on these stones in the woods with a baby boy who is now approaching his first birthday. The wheel spins quickly.
Today, my mom reminded me that it is the 26th anniversary of her father’s death.
This tiny boy whose fuzzy blonde head I nuzzle is somebody’s grandpa of the future.
“Unlimited,” his shirt reminds me and yet I also know that time is short.
Pay attention and tell about it. ❤️
Last month, our son turned 20 – two whole decades, where did they go?? I remember vividly when he was as small (and as blonde!) as your wee boy… Treasure every moment, Molly, for as the saying goes, ‘To a mother, the days are long, but the years are short’ – oh so true!
