days…weeks…years… creep past…relentless and lethargic… a golden sun upon a wintry blue    matte.  Subtle repetition and we notice neither inches nor wrinkle until their almost surprising appearance shakes us from slumber.  Baker… takes his first unsupervised Friday evening with friends… Aashir, his first steps.  Belle, broadcasting herself on youtube…..  Enjoying my age….my own growth.. this newfound place and perch… A place of which I’ve sought…thirsty…deprived… the discovering of a wonderful journey…always longing for the next step…the next moment… and all the while, completely and deliriously content with the previous.  Nestled comfortably…. with coffee and twinkling lights…shiny Hindu elephants and lush poinsettia.. Unfiltered laughter of a small child.. a mother’s brilliant beautiful love, outshining that of combined decor, rings music in this house…soft rain in a spring forest.. Pictures and memories adorn our walls and mantle.. cherished yesterdays and hopeful tomorrows.. Then…. my own steps.. I’ve been led..directed..embraced by a loving God… somewhere…out there… and here…. I….. am…. a father… a husband and friend… but a child…He watches… His very walls…scattered pictures and milestones… pictures of my struggles… my triumphs….  my fortunate….very fortunate journey… and He…. smiles…..
