He has now been back with us a week-and-a-half, but it was a long lonely six days (but it definitely felt like weeks) without Bryan around. Despite the general goings-on, the house was somehow quiet and felt empty. The day before he returned, he phoned me from the Mall in Laval, Quebec asking my opinion on toys for the boys that I couldn’t quite imagine in my mind’s eye. I agreed anyway as I know he has good taste (he married me after all). I was also quietly gleeful that he was in fact out gift hunting and was hopeful of something profound for myself.
Shortly after he stepped through the door and Cameron laid his head on his shoulder and hugged him for an eternity, he sat down and quietly beckoned Ian over.
“I brought something for you Ian–from Canada”, he offered in a quiet, but intriguing voice.
“What is it, what is it?!” Ian said, almost bellowing from the excitement.
Next it was Cameron’s turn.”Cameron, comeeeeee’re!” And with that, the tiny little feet sprinted to him.
“I couldn’t think what to get you sweetie, and everything I liked was well over $100. So I got you something I thought you’d appreciate.”
I am never without words, but this rendered me speechless. Ahh…priceless love.
