Every single day
since you were born
you have added something so amazing to our world.
I can't imagine our family without you in it...
Happy Birthday, my beloved son.
I love making little books that flip open to reveal a bunch of pictures.
It tells a little story all on it's own.
I love this passage so much.
“We’re so caught up in our everyday lives
that events of the past,
like ancient stars that have burned out,
are no longer in orbit around our minds.
There are just too many things we have to think about every day,
too many new things we have to learn.
new terminology …
no matter how much time passes,
no matter what takes place in the interim,
there are some things we can never assign to oblivion,
memories we can never rub away.
They remain with us forever, like a touchstone.”
― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
