This is our littlest girl. When I look at her and the complete miracle that she is, I am overcome with gratitude for my life; for hers.
I am thankful for this big family that has allowed me to pause. Be grateful. Be calm. Live more fully. See things more clearly. Her wide eyes bring me (all of us, really) so much JOY. And the smallest things feel so, so big. I am so much more aware of our abundance when I watch her happily explore our tiny background, dance in water from the sprinklers, taste the smallest square of chocolate, play the same key (over and over) on the piano.
