New Life

video
Gavin David Bruce Norton

Born on the anniversary of his
Great Grandma Patricia's death,
and named after his Uncle Gavin and Great Grandpa Bruce,
this little guy has already stolen every heart in sight.

Not long after his birth, Lincoln and I walked
out to see Uncle Gavin's pine,
the one he planted
only a few days before his death.
It has recently sprouted a new
little sapling. I imagine it comes in honor of this new life just begun.
See how the larger tree lovingly bends to hover over it's little charge.
My life is swollen with miracles.
