On this Day Last Year

One year ago today we were in Ethiopia meeting our boy for the first time. I got a little bit teary several times today just thinking about it. 
It surprised me a little bit that I felt emotional about this particular anniversary.

Perhaps that lump in my throat is the memory of the painful 5 month wait that followed that wonderful week in Ethiopia.

Or maybe it's because he's just not that little anymore.

Or maybe it's the realization that - at this point one year ago - I had NO IDEA just how many things this
little one would add to my life.

And maybe, just maybe, I get a little bit teary eyed because sometimes I still can't believe he's really here.
And as for Mr. Briggs?
On this anniversary he is particularly thankful for his bike
and for sunshine.
