Brown Eyed Girls

I had a very profound moment with my daughter this morning. I had just finished getting dressed for the day and we started our walk down the stairs. It was just her and I because my son was at school. She asked me to hold her hand. This is unusual for her—she's normally quite independent. I looked at her like I always do, taking notice of how incredibly beautiful she is. I said, "Sweetie, you look beautiful this morning."



She replied, "Mommy, you look pretty too."



It was a simple exchange but it filled me with joy. I got to see myself through her beautiful brown eyes and, wouldn't you know it, I did look pretty too.

  2. You have a wonderful way of sharing some of your most precious moments, and, we, who know and love you, thank you for it. I have a confession, I've always been a total sucker for brown eyed girls, First, there was Grandma Mary, then Maggie, followed by Aleita, then Tatum, now, with Kaylin, I've found blue eyed girls can rock my world too!!

  3. Ahhh. Thank goodness for moments like this. It is these times that make all the moments they drive us INSANE (or is that just me they do this too?) manageable.

  7. What a precious moment! You should write all those down. Often the little moments are the most extraordinary.

  8. You should definitely write down this lovely moment. I did with my kids and now when they get on my nerves (as teens do), I whip out my journal and remember what wonderful children I have living beneath the teenage surface.
