Sometimes a year can pass so quickly you barely notice it. You say "we'll go on vacation next year" or "in a few years...."
It would do us good to remember that for some a year is everything. Every experience, every joy, every struggle, every day of their life fits into just one year.
That year is coming to a close for Eilidh. In just over 24 hours it will be one year since she left her cozy hidey-hole and joined the big world. What a year it's been. What amazing experiences we've had. I'm forever grateful that I have been her foundation, her grounding line, the home base from which she ventures, ever further, to explore that world. And I'm patiently excited to see each new day of her new year.
