365 | 4

Friday, January 4, 2013

Some days with my girls are crazy . . . well most days.  I get to the end of most of them wondering if my oldest even likes her mom.  

Today I asked her if she wanted to go outside and take some pictures with me.  She played mommy's game and carefully cradled one of our succulents in her little hands while I took some shots.  

Tonight I stayed with her awhile as she lay tucked in bed.  She is a chatterbox and I usually have to remind her its time to be quiet or she won't fall asleep.  As she jabbered on I asked her what she wanted to be when she grows up.  She said, "A Mommy, because I love you so much!  I teared up then, she couldn't possibly know how much that meant to me or how much I needed to hear it.   As I look at this picture I get choked up again.  What I really see is not a succulent but my heart in those precious little hands of hers.
