Moments Today

We went dress shopping today. Sofia and Marc are going to a Father-Daughter Dance on Friday. As we looked at pictures online, I was surprised to have my 8yo "jeans and t-shirt only, please" express an interest in getting a new dress. We had so much fun (and success) shopping.

There were moments when my girl, my Anna, looked like a 3yo discovering the wonder and beauty of being a girl. She found her long hair and all but twirled around. She all but asked the question out loud "Am I lovely?"** And at times, she was the emerging young woman that she is - thoughtful, creative, beautiful - all in one glance.

How blessed and honored I am to be this girl's mother.
