Precious moments

This morning, my cute little angel pulled on my shirt, looking up at me asking if I could tell her again what happened this morning. "Of course" I said squatting down to her level, allowing her to perch on my left knee. I began to whisper softly...

"This morning you ran into our bed while you were having a bad dream. I wrapped you up in my arms but you were still squirming and making noise, so I whispered softly in your ear, "Mommy's here", and your body relaxed, forgetting about the bad dream and turning into a good rest."

She looked up at me as she wrapped her arms around my neck and nuzzled her nose into my left ear, sighing with that sound of relief that led me to believe that the words "Mommy's here" could fix even the worst dilemmas in her world. How I treasure those kind of precious moments, wishing I could be that to her forever. I grab my heart and hold it, knowing this too is for a limited time only. I am going to soak it all up while I still can:)
