Simple Things Sunday: Waiting


Taken this past week at the airport waiting for daddy to return from a trip to see the Canadiens, this photo captures many stories about our life right now. It tells the obvious story of waiting to see daddy and having missed him. It tells the story of Hudson`s never-ending curiosity, his desire to always be looking and exploring and touching. It also tells the story of how quickly he is growing up. At just nine and a half months he is standing up at every chance, trying to climb up, and walking very well (and quickly!) with assistance. It tells the story of travel; how Hudson has been at the airport several times already to drop off and pick up various family members, how he has already been on a plane in his young life, and how more world exploration will be inevitable for him as a member of the Ryan Trio. Lastly, for me, it tells the story of taking pleasure in the quiet moments. Waiting at the airport for a delayed flight that the information screens were saying was on time could have been frustrating. Instead, I sat back and enjoyed Hudson exploring the rows and rows of seats in the waiting area, looking out the windows, walking around the observation deck, sitting and standing and sitting and crawling. We easily and enjoyably passed the time until daddy was home again.

What was one of your simple joys this week?
