Life Is a Little Girl

“I could cry. I could crumble down and cry every time I see her.”
Love has so many forms, so many shapes and sizes. It can give so much, and it can fill in so many empty places. Love can turn the world into a glorious promise and fulfill it at the same time.
Love for a friend can make life worth living. Love for a father can make a son taller, make a daughter stronger, more beautiful. Love for a lover can heal a spirit, forgive self-loathing, and teach one how to cry with joy.

Love for child can make a mother happen where there was once only a little girl. Love for a child can make a man where a boy once tore about with his toys. The perfect trust of a newborn child is so stunning, so powerful. Once you meet, once hearts touch, nothing is ever the same.

From then on . . . life is a little girl.

Happy first days on Earth, little Robyn.
Thank you, for letting me be your blog-godmother.
