It's a New Year

I am looking forward to a special year this 2009. The powerful experience of giving birth to a son and losing a brother leaves me irreparably changed. I immerse myself in the tiniest moments - I inhale them knowing that they are gone almost as soon as they come. The smell of my daughter's hair when she snuggles in the morning, the sweet smile on the baby's face when he sees me. His laugh. My daughter dancing. The wind. A warm bath with lavender. I am grateful for the awareness that I might otherwise have not had. 2009 will be embraced by me, one moment at a time, with gratefulness.
