Today she is a canoe-er. canoe-ist? A person in a canoe.
She is a blindfolded pinata hitter.
Today, she asked that we sing to her before the day ended and chose this candle that she made last week at vacation bible school. So what if we are eating McDonald's at 10 pm and the only singers were her Mom, Dad and sister....this is a genuine smile.
Today, my heart is as full as it was 8 years ago when they handed her to me for the first time. Today, I am a super lucky mom to an 8 year old.
This is what it's all about. Next week we will celebrate with a party but today was just plain ol' happiness.Pin It
