He kills me!

I’m keeping it to 10, in no particular order:

  1. Before he was born, and keep in mind I had already been blessed with 3 beautiful children under the age of 5, I used to think to myself, someone is missing. I could not shake the feeling and it did not go away until he arrived almost 5 years later.
  2. As a baby, with a few teeth, his favorite thing to do was to gnaw on the chinese barbecue spare rib bones in his exersaucer. Somewhere I have an awesome photo.
  3. He is the life of every party and the kid that all the other kids gravitate towards. He accepts this responsibility with a deep humility and total modesty that makes me weep when I watch him. He just knows how to be fully present for people.
  4. He is nice to absolutely everyone, loyal and strong.
  5. He still, at the age of almost 15, holds my hand in public because he knows I really love it.
  6. He is never ever afraid to express his true feelings to me, even when he knows it is going to be hard for me to hear.
  7. He has a ferocious love for his brothers and sister, in spite of the way they sometimes treat him.
  8. He lights me up with his love for me. He’ll chat and offer really funky insights and perspectives that belie his age.
  9. He thinks I’m really funny.
  10. He’s always been G. for me, someone I can count on 100 percent of the time. Just a great Big lovely guy. I miss him whenever he is not around.

Oh my goodness G., I’m overwhelmed by all of it. I love you Gareth!

About livebig365

Join me as I dive in to the deep end of the pool and challenge myself to live big and love big. What does that mean? In 2012 , I accepted the invitation to push myself beyond my comfort zone, at least once a day, and engaged and responded to my life, or a given situation in my life, in a way that would normally scare the hell out of me. Why did I do it it? Because it was time time to begin, and I was ready! Each day brought a new revelation, lesson, challenge, encounter, a teaching moment, that revealed to me that living big and loving big are uniquely interconnected. Welcome 2013, the year of lovebig 365. Each post was an expression of love experienced, witnessed, inspired, manifested. It didn't always make sense in the moment, and yet its sheer mystery hopefully evoked a beautiful affirmation of life and all of its shimmery brightness; broken up, lovely to behold, tender and full of purpose. 2014, jagged, bumpy, disjointed posts. 2015, silence, and plenty of growth within that silence. Manifesting 2016: The creation of a gathering place for gratitude. Join in the wavering, audacious, unequivocal fun. 2017: Reflection 2018: POWER, MAGIC, TRANSFORMATION
