you begin to experience everything through her eyes. It's as if you suddenly have a filter over your eyes, seeing life sharper and softer both at the same time.
I just experienced my second thanksgiving as a mom. My first without my father. Gratitude took on a entirely new meaning. I am so thankful to have had a father who loved me unconditionally. I am so immensely blessed to be able to love my daughter unconditionally. To love and be loved. There really is nothing else that matters.
Josslyn did great over the holiday. She had a blast exploring at Aunt Jill's and as always felt right at ease at Aunt Amy's and Uncle Tony's. The food was delicious and the company was home.
It is a a humbling thing to see the world through happiness and gratitude. Thank you Daddy and Josslyn for that filter.
