My Christmas gift from my son and his family in Paris is a delightful brag book. So in a very small way let me brag about a life that is just beginning … a little baby boy who I have yet to meet! In the photo you can see my fingers holding the page of the book open, my son’s fingers and the baby’s fingers gripping his. Life is always precious, yet right at the start young lives touch us so much more strongly … the awe of a new being entering our day-to-day world, someone who we know we will love and care for as much as we can for as long as we are still here. His arrival alters everything, the new life of our family is just beginning! You can see more beginnings at Weekly Photo Challenge.
