It's beginning to seep in.......my girl is blissfully happy and insurmountably loved. My biggest fear the moment I learned the dreadful news that Jeremiah died was, "Is our baby going to be okay without a Dad?" In this past year I can't count the times I've sighed in relief.....She's going to be ok. More than ok. The more I watch and witness minute by minute the unbelievable resilience of life through Miah Jane the more I believe to no longer have fear, but faith and hope. Moments like Easter this year cast all my doubts aside and hold fast to my tried and true.....LOVE NEVER FAILS.
I know I haven't been updating as often as I used to, but quite honestly life has gotten in the way and I am absolutely treasuring the feeling. I can't explain the pleasure and healing I have found in my glorious routine or should I say routines with Miah. I don't know that I would dare say I feel normal again, but I feel like I'm living. She and I are living.
With all that gushiness aside.......Easter 2011 was an "eggs"travaganza!!! My lovely parent's hosted a brunch for MJ, her besties Devin and Lexi, AND Devin and Lexi's family!!!! I feel like I'm always saying my Mom out did herself, but I assure you when I say it I'm not exaggerating or over using the phrase. The woman and her culinary skills NEVER cease to amaze my taste buds. Once our bellies couldn't take anymore we headed outside to my Dad's meticulously well taken cared for yard to watch the kids find eggs loaded with money, jelly beans, and toys. The "oohs" and "aahs" from their little mouths were incredible.......if only they knew the gifts the give with their smiles and eye twinkles.
Powerful stuff those smiles and eye twinkles aren't they?
