Each morning I wake up to the sounds of Noelle cooing. It always brings a smile to my face, even if it is earlier in the morning than I would normally prefer.
I pick her up & snuggle her and sing her a morning lullaby into her ear and tell her how loved she is. I look into her baby blue eyes and dream about where life will take her. We then lay in bed together, playing, kissing, hugging and ‘talking’ to each other.
When I look into her gorgeous blue eyes, I know that she is destined for great things.
I roll over and check my phone, and of course, just like every morning- there is a sweet good morning text from Matt. I don’t think he has ever missed a morning. I smile and reply with something usually sweet & sassy, that’s my style and I know it brings a smile to his face.
I play with Noelle and we read together. Well, I read, she attempts to grab the pages and put them in her mouth. She’s cute like that.
I kiss the top of her head and thank God for how lucky I am to have her in my life. She brings me such joy that it cannot be expressed. Even with the ka-gillion and one things on my plate, I make sure that I take time for what is most important in my life.
When her little eyes close, I cherish the quiet time too.
I love working and seeing our family photo on my desk and seeing that my husband has ‘sneakily’ put heart shaped stickers all around the frame.
Its all these little things that bring infinite happiness in my life.
Its all these little joys that compile my days. And its all these little joys that make me feel so very blessed.
Each morning I look forward to the day. I look forward to the challenges, the balancing act, the little joys and doing exactly EVERYTHING I love.
