Goodbye 2010

Dear Judah,

This day a year ago, you were smaller than a sesame seed. We had barely found out about you, much less soaked in the idea that you were about to change our lives.

This has been quite a year. A year of months of patient waiting and quiet growing.

A year of becoming: wife becoming mom, husband becoming dad, you coming into being, and hope becoming a reality.

We’ve rejoiced together, gotten through long nights, heard your first cry, saw your first smile and laugh. 

This will be remembered as a sweet year.

Dear 2010,

Thanks for everything.

Dear 2011,

Welcome.

“Time is a relentless river and it rages on, respecter of no one.

And the only way to slow time is this: Enter fully into the current moment and the stream of time slows — slows — with the weight of a soul’s full attention.

We slow the torrent by being all here.

Life at its fullest is this sensitive, detonating sphere, and it can be carried only in the hands of the unhurried and reverential—a bubble held in awe.” (Ann Voskamp)
