After a few super busy weeks, I took a couple hours today to just hold my little Peter.  He went from giggly to quietly awake to sweetly slumbering to awake again, comfortably held close to my heart.  As I watched his tiny chest rise and fall, his gentle sighs in dreamland, I couldn't shake the thought -

Its just too much.  I don't deserve this.  This perfect moment suspended in time, silk soft baby skin, sweet breath in and out.  Its pure gift.

This Christmas, I've been given everything I could ever have wanted - and so very much more.
