Dear Ziggy,

I haven’t written here in a long time. It’s not because I didn’t want to write. I won’t go into details with you but Mommy had an owwie and went to the hospital and the doctors fixed me. I’m okay now. And being away from you and being presented with the idea that something could ever take me away from you made me think really hard about a lot of things.

We are busier these days. Busy making sure we make all the right moves. Busy teaching you the right way and steering you back from the wrong way. This is a process that’s getting more and more complicated but I had the chance to see the much greater picture and realize that each moment is meaningful and each moment is a beautiful gift. You will learn that some words hurt. Some hands hit. Sometimes your feelings are hard to control. This can take a lifetime to understand and we are learning and growing together. These days, some long and some short, all pieced together make up our map. Our life. But there’s no need to hurry.

You will learn everything you need to know to get through this journey. This is because you have your Mommy and Daddy who love you, and who love each other, very very much. You will never lose us. We will always be here. A day will come when you’ll be ready to go off on your own adventures, studying your own maps. And we know this. All we can do is steer you towards what is right and what is good so you have all the things you need for a meaningful life.

I love you this big,
