i see this...

I see this...
and I can't help but feel happiness as it transfers from my eyes to my heart. I can't help but want to take their happiness and bottle it up in a jar, to hold on to it, treasure it, savor it. This, is the image of an almost 5 year old little boy, a kid, and an almost 60 year old grandmother. 
My son, my mother.
This, is the kind of happiness that is born into this world, and never leaves.
A kid, and a kid at heart. 
They share this special bond, as it was imprinted on their souls the day they were born. 
Ever met anyone like that before?
These two, they got the memo.

I see this...
and I can't help but feel care-free. The kind that I'm certain that if I remembered, I would have felt when I was this age, when I was almost 3. It didn't matter what time it was, I didn't have any deadlines, or pressing matters.
She just hits the ground running, takes in the glorious sunshine, 
and smiles.
My daughter, care-free.

I see this...
and I think the world would be a less happier place if it weren't for ice cream.

I see this...
and wonder what she's thinking, it must be very important.

I see this...
and I think to myself, life is an amazing miracle, isn't it?

I see this...
and I think to myself, how proud I am to be his mother.

I see this...
and I feel blessed. 
Thank you, God.
Life is good.

all 3

At some point, I'll get all 3 of them smiling at the same time. They were all doing it moments before, I promise!

welcome 2011!

I haven't had a moment's rest...
to write about Christmas.

It's all gone by so quickly...
and to be honest, I didn't take a lot of pictures.

I just enjoyed the moment...
the finer things in life.

The special times...
that don't happen every day, but when they do, they melt your heart.

The family that you don't get to see all the time...

 but when you do, it is all the more meaningful.

The friends that share good times with you...
to ring in the New Year, year after year.

The blessings...count them...

More than I could have ever hoped, 
More than I could have ever wanted.
More memories to make.
More love to be had.
Welcome, 2011!
