“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.”
― Epicurus

I’m a little afraid to say this out loud. I’m afraid to say it at all, because so many times before we’ve seen a glimpse of this, and then it has disappeared.

But I’ve been watching this come for a little over a month…. Here and there…. A taste….

I thought it was just a stimmy noise she was making….. I was afraid to hope, to believe that it might be… That it might just be what it is….

A word.
One perfectly shaped, spoken word.

She is calling to me. “MaaaMaaa…”

She is asking for me. She is speaking.

One word. I don’t know how long we will get to keep it this time…

But, for now…. It is a rare and precious gift…..
