Thanks and Giving

Days like this are tough. I cried en route to NJ thinking about how blessed I really am not just with the addition of Emme to my life but in general. In these tough times in the world you have to take stock and appreciate what you have and not what you don't. In snapping one of many photos this one sums it up pretty well for me. The photo Emme is looking at is one of our first beach trip. She struggled to get it off the chest it sits on in my father's entry to the house. After managing to get her hands on it, she brought it into the family room, propped it up and was just staring at it. Shortly after she clutched it to her chest proclaiming, "my mommy". I am indeed.

It really shows that you are meant to be her Mommy. Somewhere, somehow, someone decided this and eventually made it happen. May every day together be as sweet as this one.

What a wonderful moment - "My Mommy!" That's what it's all about.
