More than anything I want him to learn from this. It is not presents (Although those were lovely; thank you everyone!), it's not the running around arranging the dinner and getting things done (Although that is among my core competencies and I do it continuously, much to my annoyance with myself.). It is the slow weaving of a flower chain, the kind where you have to get down into the grass and find the long stems, so you can tie the knots. Taking time. Small things. Connected to other people. That's what I want him to learn. I know where the daisies are, just exactly; but we haven't gone in weeks. Too much rushing. Busy.
Thanks neighbors for the reminder and the love. Happy, happy birthday Liam; not so small any more but always still our tiny, little baby.
