amidst the laughter and the tears you feel the connection and the blessings

there’s nothing better than laughing and crying at the same time.

ren and eric arrived late last night. we hadn’t seen them since ren’s baby shower in july, and wow, how her baby has grown!  ren, tai and i sat cuddled on the couch, and as i sat touching her belly, i felt her baby’s foot push.  i could feel the tears well up in me.  tai had his head on her belly, listening and talking to the little guy. and before i knew it, the three of us were crying, then laughing, then bawling, then howling.

it was one of those moments, where you experience the pureness of the miracle and your realize just how wonderful it is to be with the people you love experiencing the exact same mystericle.  the combination of the gratitude and awe can be so overwhelming and beautiful, and you awaken to the many blessings.
