bliss

e in the sun


so, that's what this photo says to me: the essence of joy without limit. she makes everyday so special, just by being here. we are so grateful for the happiness that is innate to who she is as a person, and how freely she shares that with us. today she and Baba came to see me at work and it was the reason i left smiling tonight. apparently she was so happy to be on her way to the hospital she kissed the car because it was the vehicle that would carry her to me. when i at last arrived home? there was g- greeting me with a smile and a kiss, while she and the dog were at my feet, one wiggling his back end, the other hugging my leg. sometimes there is nothing better than feeling like you are the glue, the "it"... you know, the mom. i have never felt more loved in my life as i do now. and i never dreamed being a mom could be this fulfilling. and it isn't about all that i receive, but about how much more i'm capable of giving for all that i have. my soul is content. life is good. the small stuff isn't worthy of my sweat :) so, i'm not sweating it.

here's to the new year. hope yours is filled with bliss.
