Getting to watch his delight as he learns what his body can do, what is possible, is just about the best thing that has ever happened to me.
I spend so much time thinking about how I should be different - thinner, more disciplined, more responsible, less sensitive, more frugal, more giving, patient - and the world should be different - kinder, less confusing, more manageable. And then there are tiny little moments when I walk outside and it's the first day that feels like Fall is on its way, and even though we still need a mosquito net for walks and even though I haven't mowed the lawn and even though Jammer's skin is acting up and the sink is full of dishes and my to-do list is a mile long and I'm not patient or more frugal, even though I and the world are exactly as we are, I feel joy. A little splash of pure joy that makes me laugh out loud because this life. Wow, this life. ❤️
