Enchanting Moments

Life is filled with enchanting little moments that often slip by before we even notice them.  I live a very full and sometimes crazy life, but I am so thankful for the ability to enjoy those sweet little memories before they are gone forever.  If I do forget the wonder of the little things in life, Katelyn is there to remind me.  She is learning new and exciting things every day, as she grows to be a little girl in this big crazy world.  Her sense of wonder and delight in the silliest little things is irresistibly charming.

We had a good day today.  It wasn't particularly remarkable.  In fact, we both slept through a good part of the afternoon.  Then we ran errands, ate dinner, and watched part of a movie until it was time for Katelyn to take a bath and go to bed.  Little things.  But in the company of a little person I love more every day, it was a day full of enchanting moments.  Like when I asked her if she wanted a cookie and she said, "Yes!"  Or when she laughed and applauded when I sang a silly song.  Or when I told her it was time to take a bath and she said, "Bath!" and headed to the bathroom to brush her teeth, then splashed and laughed in the tub.  And especially when she sighed and snuggled up against me to look at the stars on her ceiling right before bed.  Every day I am reminded that my sweet little girl is a precious gift from God, as with each enchanting moment, she steals just a little more of my heart.
