How does 7 happen?

The answer is simply it just does.
Seven years ago today, I imagine I was staring in wonderment at this tiny being that changed my whole world. I see him bundled up tight resting in my shaky arms.
Everyone had gone home but he and I remained. The Calgary Flames were planning in the NHL finals (they didn't win). The nurse was in the room hanging out with us. She could feel my apprehension. She read my fears though I never once voiced them aloud. She comforted me. She told me it would all work out.
I wish I knew her name so I could thank her. She was so very right.
Seven years ago today, my baby boy was born. Today, he is more beautiful than I could have imagined, smarter than I thought possible and such a joy that there aren't words spectacular enough to articulate.
Happy Birthday My Monkey Man!
