I know a girl. She puts the color inside of my world.
But she’s just like a maze, where all of the walls all continually change.
And I’ve done all I can to stand on the steps with my heart in my hand.
Now I”m starting to see, maybe it’s got nothin’ to do with me.
– John Mayer, “Daughters”
It’s no secret that I absolutely 100% adore my girls. I am head-over-heels in love with them both. They make me a better person, a better woman, a better mother. They hold so much wisdom, intuition, and strength in their sweet little hearts that it brings tears to my eyes. They’ve endured a lot…both of them. They may not have had to deal with illness or starvation or homelessness, but they were each born more mature than their years. Their perception of their lives is almost frightening. I am so blessed. I am so fortunate that they were given to me. Each of them have provided nurturing in my times of need, wisdom in my times of distress, joy in my times of sadness. It is hard to believe that creatures so small, so young and inexperienced can give so much more to me than I give to them…without ever knowing it.
They are amazing. They are beautiful. They are life.
