7 months

See this little girl?
She's 7 months old. She's sitting up and reaching out her arms. She loves to watch Baby Einsteins with her sister and laughs hysterically when her brother blows bubbles on her tummy. She's saying dada and mama. She sucks her thumb when she's tired and she has to have her little faithy bear with her to sleep.

She's my sunshine girl.

and SUCH a mama's girl. So attached.

I soak it up. I cherish her snuggles and her reaching arms.

Some days are exhausting. Some days I go to bed with aching arms.

But they are so worth it.

I was talking with someone about her not long after she was born. I was trying to explain the connection we have. The feeling I get when she looks me in the eyes. It's a familiar feeling. Hard to express. As I was trying to, the person I was talking to, said it perfect.

She is part of your healing.

Your healing gift.

My healing gift. My Mia Glory.

You know, there is a lot of pain, suffering, heart ache and even struggle in this world. But there is also so much beauty. So much joy, and hope and moments to be treasured that far outweigh the other ones. And those hard ones, are not to be forgotten, but used. Used to grow you, strengthen you, inspire you.

And to learn value.

There is so much value in life. In this world. In our children and bringing them into this world. So much value in multiplying ourselves in others. In giving, loving and extending ourselves to others.

My sweet girl, you are my healing gift. Words will never be enough to say what you mean to me. You wear your mama out. You want me to hold you all of the time. You want to be near me always. But with every wimper for me, every little stretched out arm, every sweet look into my eyes....I feel it.


Each day brings healing. Each day brings beauty and life.
