My Sweet Girl


This sweet thing was watching me last night, while I was rubbing the sides of my head, as I held her in the chair before bringing her to bed.

She asked me what was wrong.

I told her I had a lot of things to do, that it was already 8:00, I was completely worn out from the day, and it was going to be a long night.

And she said, "Then let me stay up with you and help you do them, sweetie."

(If you know how possessive Grace is with her sleep, then you know what a huge deal it was for her to say that).

My tension headache melted away right then and there as I hugged my sweet girl.

I don't know how I ever got so lucky that I get to be the mama to raise her.

But, I sure am glad that I am.

I KNOW that sweet Gracie is an angel sent from heaven just to make all of the world happy! I love how EVERYONE is just a friend she hasn't met yet! I remember when Uncle Doran was so sad that I gave him a picture of smiling sweet Gracie...and it made him so very happy. And, best of all, Grace helps her "bestie" all the time. We love you Gracie!!!
