And just for thought...
It is the simple things in life that make me smile.
I stood in the kitchen last night,
Preparing the gourmet frozen pizza and singing Garth Brooks,
When in walked my little girl standing so sweetly, covered in peanut butter.
I thanked the powers that be right then and there for not listening to my countless prayers.
If he had, this sticky little angel would have never been a twinkle in my eye.
These moments I cherish, the ones where nothing spectacular happens.
One day she will grow into a fine woman, eating her peanut butter with a spoon.
I will stand in her kitchen, remembering my sweet little daughter,
Smiling at the wonderful woman who exchanged dolls for a family of her own.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
