All These Things

The other day I was driving in the car listening to a mix CD that I've listened to hundreds of times when suddenly I realized I was listening to the perfect song that describs how I feel about my little girl.  

Maybe it's her laugh when she throws back and sighs
Or her eyebrows when I do something stupid
Maybe it's her smell, the lotion she wears
Or how my hands smell like {baby lotion} for days
You know it could be all these things
But I think mostly it is her smile
Cause I love to see her smile back at me
And I know she is happy

Maybe it's her touch, the feel of her hands
When she puts her tiny fingers in mine
Maybe it's her eyes gently searching my soul
Still nothing stirs me like when I see those lips roll
and I see her smile
Cause I love to see her smile back at me
And I know she is happy

-Stephen Speaks

(Those who know the song will recognize that I left out the first verse...not quite as applicable!  And the subsitution of 'baby lotion' for 'country pear'-ha!)

That's a perfect song to describe how a mother feels for her daughter. It was awesome to see you and Lily yesterday! Thanks so much for coming!
