A few nights ago, Isabella and I finished up the last chapter of Little House in the Big Woods where Laura, at a mere six years old, reflected on how much she loved her now. I could barely squeak out the words because it was so touching to think of a little girl so in love with what was around her and wanting nothing else in the whole world.
Amanda (SouleMama) then finished the post by inviting us to do the same - reflect on our present moments.
Things have been a bit rocky here lately. Colds, cabin fever, a strong-willed toddler, a short-fused mama.... But looking at this picture from a couple of days ago reminds me of how much I do indeed love my now. Even with the bumps in the road, it's all one big wonderful mess.
A fun-loving, adventuresome-dressing almost 4-year old just begging to have her picture taken.
A strong-willed, curious, grabby, insistant toddler needing to investigate the picture process.
This shot says it all.
