I'm in self-quarantine, so who do I miss the most?

I didn't even have to think about my answer to this.

I went into our playroom where I 'work out' on this little cycle thing...

I suddenly just became grief-stricken. Really. It was physical.
My heart ached for this person.

Who was (is) it?
It's this little guy...
That's me with Liam.
This quarantine thing is keeping me from hugging him
and holding him
and just being with him!!!

If you know Liam at all you know that he has a Chromosome 18P deletion. He's 4 1/2. I won't go into all his issues, but know this: he is not a people-pleaser, or a perfectionst (like some adults I know (me).) He has few demands (mostly food) and he is, well, so precious to have around. I miss him so much. Oh, I miss his mother and father and sister, and my mother, and my daughter and her family in Oregon, and my niece and her family in Southlake, but I can talk to them on the phone. Little Liam doesn't talk, but oh I was thrilled when his mommy told me that when I made a video for them last week he came over when he heard his name and smiled and smiled.

 So here is part of the lonely, sad play room...
I've left those little toys on the floor because that's where little Liam left them.
I'll have to comfort myself with these pics of him recently...

Is he not the cutest/sweetest/most adorable person??

Oh, and his sister does like to make me smile and laugh. And just a while ago her dad sent me this picture...
Isn't she the cutest???

Well, even though we are hunkering down, thank goodness for pictures,
and love, and well, all fun things to think about. 

Stay well - and inside.
(Well, inside your own space.)
