Sweet Emily!


In the last few weeks there have been a few moments that I have been meaning to record so my failing memory won't lose them. First I am sharing this sweet photo of our girl because it captures her so well. She is so completely content to sit and color but if she can snuggle with her pup at the same time it is twice as nice.


I am so grateful that she was sent to our little family she brings so much balance to our rough and tumble days. Don't get me wrong she can hold her own, but she just gives the chance to remember my gentler side.

For example the other night we were doing our usual bedtime routine and I was tired as always, trying to hurry through the usual routine when she scooted over in her bed and said, "mommy do you want to lay by me?"  How could I resist such as sweet request... So I laid down beside her  and sang her another song, I was about to get up when I decided to tell her about how happy I was when she came into our family---I told her the story of when she was born and her sweet little reply was this..." mommy you make my heart feel warm!"

This after a long day of what I am certain was full of mommy mistakes, did wonders for my soul!
I love what I do and I am so grateful that I have been given this amazing opportunity!
