She’s only been here for 2 years, just 2 years living in this world.
She doesn’t understand much about life or emotions.
And she’s limited on what she can do being at the mercy of her parents for adventures and entertainment.
Sometimes in the busyness of life, I forget to look at things from her perspective.
But on this cold spring day, I looked down at her to see her staring up at me smiling and giggling and I realized this meant EVERYTHING to her.
What I took as just a simple way to break up the day and step out for some vitamin D, opened up a world of adventure and special time with mommy for her.
Every time I would look at her, I was greeted with this little smile and scrunched up nose, just the perfect reassurance that what we were doing mattered. Something this simple can bring this much joy to a tiny little girl.
Moms, I know how long, exhausting, and unnerving these days can be. But moments like this we will look back on over and over again.
During the teenage years, I will remember this little face and how much she loved me and how easy it was to make her happy.
In just a short couple of years, I will have to share her with the world forever.
This time is golden!
I will never take for granted that I GET to do this.
