For two years we have missed you,
Wishing you’d come home.

For two years we have thought of you,
Not a day goes by we don’t.

For two years we have worked for you,
Tried our best to make you proud.

For two years we have tried to emulated you,
Your courage, your beauty, your strength.

For two years we have loved you,
Still can’t believe you’re gone.

Have I mentioned?

Have I mentioned yet how much I love my daughter? I am so amazed by this little person! She's 6 months old now and blows my mind every day with how she changes and what she learns. She's a highly spirited child and quite a comedian! She's a happy baby and makes me smile hundreds of times a day. I feel so lucky in love.

I totally just had an "ah ha" moment realizing that I have the joy and privilege of molding a little human! She's not just a baby. She's a real little person who's going to grow up to be a child, a tween, a teen and an adult. Wow. And I get to be her teacher. How utterly amazing is that? I'm totally up for the challenge and I make it my mission to do my very best.

Feeling Good

There's nothing quite like the high of doing a good deed. The joy one gets from performing a completely selfless act for someone in need is hardly measurable. I'm on cloud nine today. I didn't do anything major... insignificant in the grand scheme of things really, but I know I made someone's life just a little bit easier. So, I feel awesome.

I miss writing. I miss playing with words. I am very excited to be setting up contacts and making connections to start my own work from home business as a writer. But for now... I am so in love with my daughter and I am thoroughly enjoying my year of maternity leave getting to know her. There will be plenty of time for word play later.
