A Letter to Maisy: You are My Treasure

Processed with VSCO with b1 preset

Dear Maisy,

Tonight we read two long books and prayed together.  But I could delay my depart no longer as I could hear your sister freaking out crying.  I promised to return as soon as she was in bed for the night.

When I came back in you were near zzz’s, but still offered up a sleepy and oh so pure smile as I snuggled in to spoon you.  I lay there wishing I could stay and thinking about how beautiful that smile is.  You are the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.  And Penny is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.  How is that possible?  I look at you and can’t imagine seeing anything more beautiful.  And then I look at Penny and I can’t imagine setting my eyes on anything more gorgeous. And then I look back at you and I’m back where I started.

When I look at you I feel I am looking at an indescribably breathtaking sunrise over the steadily lapping ocean as dolphins leap into the air while drinking the most delicious cup of coffee and eating a cake Jesus made Himself.  I can’t believe I get to experience that daily, hourly… every minute of every day.  I don’t get that feeling because of your looks alone, though that likely would be enough to elicit those feelings.  What I love most about you is that you are so drop dead gorgeous yet you are also the sweetest girl I have ever known and you’re a legit goofball to boot.  I love that along with your beauty comes an ever present sing-song voice with a little lisp to it.  I love that with your goofy sense of humor comes this wholehearted compassion.  I love that you freely offer me as many hugs and kisses as I want.  I picture you to be the girl at school that turns all the heads and, as you do, puts a smile on those faces and a laugh in those bellies as you pass.

I’m so proud of who you are, so excited to see who you become, and so honored to be a part of the sculpting process.  I love you Maisy.

With all my heart,

Mommy
