What can I say? It was the year of love.
Love that came so suddenly and enveloped our lives.
Love that softened me from all sides.
A ringside view of my husband falling just as instantly in love with our child.
A love that seems to grow with every strengthened muscle, each new expression and each turn of the head.
A love that looks on with wonder at the little feet clambering around, and which swells as a tired head seeks its rest against my chest.
Whatever challenges and sorrows in store ahead, it feels like there was enough love this year to last us a lifetime.
