Innocence


I hope you always find unbridled joy in life.
I hope you never grow too big to climb into my lap for snuggles.
I hope you always wake each morning eager to see what the day brings.
I hope you never feel that you are insignificant or worthless.
I hope you always spread your infectious charm to those around you.
I hope you never stop coming up to me and asking, "Hug me?"
I hope you always know how much you are wanted, treasured, and loved.

What a beautiful picture! I love your blog! I have been reading your past posts and tearing up a little bit (maybe a lot). =) You are an amazing writer and mom.

I found your blog from Tanya's blog where you posted your comment. =)
