Open Eyes

Sunday, January 1, 2012

Every day with my daughter seems to be better than the last, her developments, unbelievable intelligence, and playfulness are all contributing factors. A true gift from her to me that I am just realizing  is the ability to once again see things through the eyes of a child... again.
Birds used to just fly by, now they don't without stopping to point and say "bird". Books are no longer just something to sit with quietly at night, they are for reading as a family, yelling together reciting our favorite lines and looking forward to the next funny rhyme.
Everything looks more alive, beautiful and hopeful than ever... especially when I use my newly reopened eyes to look at my family each day.
