As it is
Amos turned one this week. I baked him a cake that was imperfect but delicious (not unlike this year we spent together). We gave him a sliver of cake and he devoured it like he eats cake every day.
It’s on these occasions when I want to be able to sum up everything, to express exactly what it all means to me, to capture the best moments of this year that has passed. Then I realize that I just need to be in it, soaking up life as it is.
