My Lovely

The past few weeks have knocked the wind of me a bit.

So in the face of unspeakable sadness for those around me I need to stop and note a little beautifulness.

~ the pram-pushing, dolly-cuddling beautifulness

~ the beautifulness that is a toddler with outstretched arms calling 'cuggle!'

~ the beautifulness of a tiny third bottom tooth poking through and ending the 'hippo teeth' look!

~ the beautifulness of her 'Wow!' and 'Ooh!' at every little thing.

~ the wonder of a little person learning to count, recognise colours and know more and more words each day.

~ the beautifulness of an emerging personality.

~ the beautifulness of last night, when I was giving her her bottle and telling her I loved her. That baby took the bottle out of her mouth leaned up and kissed me gently on the lips. I need nothing more.
