Love is ...

While visiting Charleville Castle Park today I heard a little voice saying, 'Mammy, hold my hand'.

Later as I sat in my car outside a Shopping Centre reading a book a mother returned to her car laden with shopping and with her little daughter in tow. She put the tiny toddler into the back of the car first then started loading groceries into the boot (in the U.S. - 'trunk'). Then I overheard her telling her two year old, 'Sarah, you wait a minute until I get organized! I know you think you're the most important thing in the world - and you are, but sometimes you have to wait'.

Two moments of beauty to light up my life today!

Awwwww...know how you feel. There is a bright light in my mind everytime I picture 18 month old Elijah copying his daddy by stretching a tape measure out and pretending to help daddy work on building the new room downstairs. There is nothing sweeter.

Delightful stories! And for me, memories, because I've haven't heard Mammy for the longest time.
