She's got one speed when she wakes up in the morning, and it's GO. It's as if she knows the hours are fleeting and she's got to live every moment with gusto, exploring and seeking out adventure in every cupboard, room, and drawer. While I'm not a tv or screen fan for my kids, this Mama would shout to the heavens if she would be entranced with a 30-minute Signing Time DVD. Some prayers are simple ones, these days:)
Yesterday, I took the kids to my new school and we lasted less than an hour. She had used Sharpie on herself, a book, whiteboard, and clothes. FYI, anti-bacterial soap does wonders for permanent marker on skin. The most hilarious moment was when she discovered the automatic anti-bacterial dispenser. Every time she place her hands under there, she hollered with excitement at the present bestowed on her hands. This continued multiple times and each time, her elation showed on her face when the sudsy, white foam appeared. It's as if gifts flowed freely in that mounted gray dispenser.
This week, we are appointment free. Her dentist appointment showed no cavities, and look amazing. A praise! Other than a pill for her thyroid, she's healthy and a healthy weight. Next week, she has a follow-up pediatrician appointment and a HOPEFUL, accurate hearing test. Since her ears were cleared, she's more verbal and speaking more words.
Oh, how we can't imagine our life without this little girl. She completes our family, her busyness and her love. I am continually blessed to be her Mama, to hug, to love, and to celebrate all she has to show the world. I find myself, thinking of her future like Addy and Austin. What difference will she make in the world? Already, I see the lives she has touched, who see she is more alike us than different. Imagine a world if we could see the heart of the person first? Imagine...
Being deeply LOVED by someone gives you strength;
Loving someone deeply gives you Courage.
