"I can hardly wait
To see you come of age
But I guess we'll both just have to be patient
Cause it's a long way to go
A hard row to hoe
Yes it's a long way to go
But in the meantime
Before you cross the street
Take my hand
Life is just what happens to you
While you're busy making other plans"
~ John Lennon, "Beautiful (Darling) Boy"
Truer words have never been spoken.
In the light of adversity, sometimes the Universe hands you a wonderful reminder that life and all the challenges that come along with it is truly worth all the trouble. 2009 was a very tough year with a lot of challenges, both self-imposed and not so self-imposed, but it was all worth it. And now, this little one, is our reward.
I love you beautiful boy. I promise I'll make you happy.
