Oh night divine

Mama's favourite Christmas carol

I played this hymn to Reu in the wee small hours in our 6 West room. This is simply a clip of him sleeping. Our bond grows ever stronger during these days and nights which have melted into one. Such simple pleasures, hearing my boy sleep as I doze off. I can barely pull myself away from watching him as he sleeps. The crescendo of the hymn seems to echo the flood of emotion that fills me when I look at my boy.

when our boys were littler, Scotty and I loved them so much we feared we would burst. I seriously thought I would create a long video of each of them sleeping and when they had long left the house, play the videos on three monitors on eternal loop....most moments when I look at them I still see Keith at about 4, Elliot at about 2 and Ethan at about 2.... it's not that I love them any less - but clearly I haven't burst, and they are becomings of their own - more and more every moment - which in iteself is a greatly cherished dream. The bitersweet cicumstances of Keith's birth have made Scotty and I unbearably grateful for all the ordinary miracles of a day - and my greatest wish is always for a perfectly ordinary day. thank you for your beautiful post. love,y
