I woke up this morning feeling as if there was a disturbance in the force. Â Things haven’t righted themselves yet but, on my way to drop the frog princess off, I started thinking about the hugs and kisses I’d get when I picked her up in the afternoon. Â I have been missing her since before I dropped her off. Â I guess I am having a mami moment.
Yesterday, while doing time in doctor’s waiting rooms I reconfigured my scene on my Evo. Â I took a picture of my baby girl this weekend and thought it would make a good background. Â And boy did it ever! Â I loved it so much that I moved my icons from the main screen so that I can fully appreciate the picture. Â Now, when I look at it, I just want to laugh out loud and sing.
My frog princess is growing up. Â What a year this has been! Â I won’t get into the specifics because thinking about it unleashes the ever-present sorrow. Â As I typed that, I looked to the side and saw one of my inspirational cards. Â The one facing me said: “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.” – Ephesians 1:3.
Back to my wild thing! Â This picture makes me want to jump up with joy! Shout out to the world and at the same time I want to drop down to my knees and give thanks because I feel so blessed to have such a happy, beautiful, calming, caring, comforting, loving and joyful little person in my life. Â Though the days are sometimes rough, the one thing I know for sure is that love (true, unconditional, undying love) will heal and will surpass it all. I am glad I have pictures like this to remind me to laugh. Â To find happiness in an $8 Walmart pool filled with water that I can actually splash. Â To find joy in the simple act of sharing time with someone that I love and that loves me back. Â Someone that gives me unconditionally what I give to her.
I plan on scooping her up when I see her this afternoon and while kissing her and holding her upside down, I’ll say: wild thing, you make my heart sing! And I will mean it!
PS: notice the damn dog in the background. Â He doesn’t look happy. Â I wonder if he wanted to get in the pool with her and perhaps this is what caused the bad behavior I’ve been finding lately…
