Beautiful Things

It's hard for my hands to even begin typing out my thoughts on this day, the day we celebrate Jack's birth.

The other morning I was in the shower and glanced down at my c-section scar. It is barely visible anymore, as much a part of me as anything else. Three years is a long time. Long enough for a deep scar to heal, to fade.

So much has happened in our lives since that day. We have grown, we have changed. Life before Jack is a foggy haze. Life with Jack is vivid. Full of joy, immense love, excitement, and yes, even pain.

Beautiful things have come out of the pain, though.

This song has been running through my mind all day. It was somewhat serendipitous to hear it on the radio as I was driving to let Jack swing at the park this morning. Tears streaming down my face because it so simply states what is happening in Jack's life... in our lives.





Thank you to all our close friends and family for calling, sending fun stuff in the mail, emailing, and texting us on Jack's birthday. We have such an incredible group of people who love us and the birthday boy.


Pin It!
