Old picture....same beautiful girl. She is growing every day, how can I stop time and keep her small just a bit longer. Stop time and study her eyes as they blink and twinkle, watch her discover her feet and so easily place them in her gummy little mouth (her gummy smile is too cute I don't want her to get teeth quite yet!) leave her for 2 seconds on the ground and when I come back she has rolled ten feet away from her original spot. Stop time and listen to her breathe, watch her tiny precious body take in breath and let it out...Life is hard and crazy and doesn't make sense to me most of the time, but when I see my girl I am brought back to a lovely place. She heals my soul, and lightens my burdens just by looking at me. I am her mother and she is my daughter...FOREVER! Thank you God for this most incredible gift. Please let her love me as much as I love her. My heart has grown a gajillion times bigger since having this life inside me and now outside of me. Ahhh...my heart is full at this moment...and now, even for just this moment today I am all right.
