ironies

today i was watching oprah. did you see it?
there was a segment where this dad read letters he wrote to his newborn son who had a terminal disorder. the doctors didn't think the baby would live past birth, but he did. little eliot acutally lived for 99 days - an amazing miracle! so it was a video/photo montage of eliot with the dad reading these incredible letters of how much he loved eliot, how proud they were of him, & how happy they were to get up @ 3am & take care of him, how they celebrated each day of his life like it was a birthday... so i was sobbing. sobbing & thinking about how amazing life would be if i could grasp this kind of thing in the midst of the mundane, if i could truly understand what it means to be thankful for my life, and especially for my son's life...
that's when hudson puked.
yeah, you read that right - he puked 3 times right in the middle of my contemplation of the essense of real life.
he has amazing comedic timing.

Hahaha! That's hilarious. LEave it to kids to yank us out of our reverie. So, did you cherish each moment as you cleaned up the puke?
