Let’s try and do it right this time

Day 185 and 186

Earlier, Wil, Revie and I were goofing around, playing, kicking and throwing a ball, running around, laughing.

And suddenly,

my head swam

seeing our small son,

carrying features from each of us,

and some all his own,

running, and jumping, and smiling,

here in our small house, with the wood floor and sloping roof.

I just can’t believe

how after years of loving each other,

we suddenly have someone else to love as well.

And I wonder,

how I could have ever wondered,

if having a child was the right decision

in a world

very near collapse.

Because his sweet heart has the power

to love

much more than I’ve ever been able.

And really that’s my job.

Love him so much that his heart fills up,

and overflows

so it blends with the trees, and the water, and the soil, and the air, and the sky.

THIS is hope.

For the future,

for the people,

for the world.

Revel

is

hope.

And all the babies.

Let’s try and do it right this time.

Thank you for listening,

Love,

Natasha
