Wild Thing...You Make My Heart Sing!

I woke up this morning feeling as if there was a disturbance in the force.  Things haven't righted themselves yet but, on my way to drop the frog princess off, I started thinking about the hugs and kisses I'd get when I picked her up in the afternoon.  I have been missing her since before I dropped her off.  I guess I am having a mami moment. Yesterday, while doing time in doctor's waiting rooms I reconfigured my scene on my Evo.  I took a picture of my baby girl this weekend and thought it would make a good background.  And boy did it ever!  I loved it so much that I moved my icons from the main screen so that I can fully appreciate the picture.  Now, when I look at it, I just want to laugh out loud and sing.

My frog princess is growing up.  What a year this has been!  I won't get into the specifics because thinking about it unleashes the ever-present sorrow.  As I typed that, I looked to the side and saw one of my inspirational cards.  The one facing me said: "Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ." - Ephesians 1:3.

Back to my wild thing!  This picture makes me want to jump up with joy! Shout out to the world and at the same time I want to drop down to my knees and give thanks because I feel so blessed to have such a happy, beautiful, calming, caring, comforting, loving and joyful little person in my life.  Though the days are sometimes rough, the one thing I know for sure is that love (true, unconditional, undying love) will heal and will surpass it all. I am glad I have pictures like this to remind me to laugh.  To find happiness in an $8 Walmart pool filled with water that I can actually splash.  To find joy in the simple act of sharing time with someone that I love and that loves me back.  Someone that gives me unconditionally what I give to her.

I plan on scooping her up when I see her this afternoon and while kissing her and holding her upside down, I'll say: wild thing, you make my heart sing! And I will mean it!

PS: notice the damn dog in the background.  He doesn't look happy.  I wonder if he wanted to get in the pool with her and perhaps this is what caused the bad behavior I've been finding lately...
