Special Moments...

Sometimes life gives you moments that make this life worth living. I was sitting on the couch this evening...not feeling well. I heard my daughter coming down the steps...wearing her big grin. She said mom I was listening to a song on my iPod...and it made me think of you...wanna hear it?

She plopped herself down beside me and handed me an ear bud...I popped it in my ear...and the song that started playing was Martina McBrides...Like my mother does. She wrapped her arms around me and played her head on my chest as the song played...she was hugging me harder and harder...and I noticed she had tears in her eyes...which then made me get tears in mine.

When the song was finished she looked at me with those big hazel eyes and said "mom I love you...and I hope I'm like you when I grow up". Made my heart melt...I cherish those moments with her...cuz she's almost a teenager :)
