i came to the east coast to experience the birth of ren’s first baby, and came prepared to do a lot of writing and reading. most of my suitcase was filled with books that i’ve been trying to finish reading, and notes for a book that i’m working on. to be honest with you, i’ve been so in love with odin, that i have been able to get very little done.
it’s like i’ve been in the middle of worshiping little buddha.
and that is indeed the case – he is simply little buddha odin.
instead of getting down on myself for not getting a lot done over these past weeks, i’ve decided to focus on the fact, that i’m in the presence of god’s greatest gift, and that what i am doing right this minute is exactly what i’m intended to be doing.
as i begin this new year, with hope, happiness and harmony, i breathe in little odin and i am filled with the joy that my life has changed and will continue to change. i find all the blessings before me, wrapped up in this perfect little package. as i breathe in his baby smell, his baby skin, his baby hair, as i touch his softness, his smoothness, as i notice every teeny detail that makes him work, and as i listen to every single one of his tiny sounds that he utters, i am overwhelmed with gratitude and joy.
little buddha odin is the reminder that if i see everything around me as precious as he, i am living a life surrounded by miracles and that i have so much to be grateful for.
as i become overwhelmed with odin’s peace, i realize i’m in heaven and that i am one with tiny odin.
