There's nothing like the warmth of a summer afternoon...
Walking to the sunlight, and being cradled my the moon
Catching fireflies at night
Building castles in the sand
Kissing Mama's face goodnight
And holding Daddy's hand
Thank you Lord,
how could I ask for more?
Running barefoolt in the grass...
A little hide and go seek
Being so in love, that you can hardly eat
Dancing in the dark, when there's no one else around
Being bundled 'neath the covers, watching snow
Fall to the ground
Thank you Lord, how could I ask for more?
So many things I thought would bring me happiness
Some dreams that are realities today
Such an irony the things that mean the most to me
Are the memories that I've made along the way
So if there's anything I've learned
From this journey I am on
Simple truths will keep you going
Simple love will keep you strong
Cause there are questions without answers
Flames that never die
Heartaches we go through are often blessings in disguise
So thank you Lord, oh thank you Lord
How could I ask for more...
(by Cindy Morgan) This song describes my heart right now better than anything I could put into words.
Yesterday we saw Momma G for Mothers Day and I can't tell you how incredible it was.
I find it beyond difficult to describe what this relationship is like between mother and first mother. But when you really open yourself up to it, let down all your walls and make yourself as vulnerable as she has...then something happens. I get teary when I think about how much I love these women. I cannot imagine what it's like to trust someone with your child, and yet these women have done it so gracefully with us. So seeing them and nourishing a relationship with them and our shared child is absolute therapy for me.
Sadie-cakes was in her normal fabulous mood and was being sassy around the boys. She was beggin' for sweets from Momma G, and it was so fun to watch these two interact and see the joy in both of their eyes. Sadie doesn't know yet the impact of these playdates, but to see Momma G laugh and light up was priceless. Thank you Lord, how could I ask for more...
