a sweet story

I am recycling an old picture for this post because it fits...
My Heart

This morning the wee one got up before we did and as she often, does she climbed into bed between us for some snuggle time. As one point I reached over and placed my hand on Greg's arm and she did the same. We laid there for a while with our hands clasped. At some point I had to turn over and stretch so I removed my hand. H told me I had to put it back. I did and she said "we love." The a moment later she said "because we stay together." Maybe you had to be there, but it was such a tender moment and I am constantly amazed at the wise things that come out of this 3 year olds mouth. It literally brought me to tears and then I had to get up and write it down. I love her so much.


  1. OMG! That's beautiful!! You are raising a daughter with a beautiful heart Heather!! Keep up the great work!!

  2. You could not have said it better, that is beautiful and heart warming.

  3. What a special moment. Thank you for sharing.

  4. What a special, special moment Heather. Your daughter has a beautiful soul. And obviously feels very loved.

  5. great quote and story. moments like that are what we need to remember when that same child has pushed all our buttons in the first hour of the morning :)

    so if your little heart is a piece of you and she adores her auntie (moi), does that mean her mommy adores me also?

    thanks for sharing. love ya!
