a lit candle

4 September, 2013

Yesterday I lit the candle shaped like a “1”, gathered the cake and grinned, preparing to take it out to my baby. In moments like these, too fleeting and personal to freeze with a camera, the image in front of my eyes resonates through time, meaning flowing past and present, and I think ‘This is it, right here, this feeling, I don’t ever want to forget this’.

    Happy Birthday little man!! Your mama gets “it”! The holding on and being fully present to the moments that slip by so quickly.

    p.s. I love your mama’s hair!
