Day 204

Today I was woken up by my energetic two year old niece. I wandered into her room while she was crying out just after six am. Her teeth have been bothering her the last few days with her molars coming through so I thought I should get up to play with her. The first thing she says every morning is PLAY, I want to play. It is her top priority. The day is measured on how much fun she can have. I love her attitude. Greg and I spend a few hours in the morning playing trains, singing the alphabet, etch-sketch, kitchen fun, making pretend breakfast then eating real breakfast. We decide to take her down to the local beach park for some more play. I am sitting here in the sun surrounded by all these excited kids. I know Hamish has put us both here. We are so grateful for today. We are making the most of this long weekend. The rest of the day was spent swimming in the ocean pool and soaking up another amazing warm day.

Hamish I think of you often. I think about what you would look like? How big would you be by now? I will never have the answers to these questions. What I do know is that in your short life you knew you were loved. Each time I think of you I send you love wherever you may be.
