Ice princess

Today has been so fun! Maddi is still obsessed with the movie frozen (and maybe I am a little too) so today after work and a quick trip to the library, we went to the fabric store together. We rummage through piles and piles of fabric until she found the perfect light blue, sparkly fabric that looked exactly like Elsa's cape.  Then we rushed home to sew, measure, and re-create the perfect princess cape. After we finished I took a moment to just sit and soak her in. So often I hop from task to task while life just slips past me, but today I just sat, perfectly content, and got swallowed up in the joy and innocence of my sweet little girl. I love that she sings with her whole heart, that she dances to share her joy, that she radiates confidence and contentment. She already has everything I dreamed of being able to give her. I see my strength and her daddy's humor when she smiles. I recognize her brother's compassion and God's perfect love in each hug. Days like today remind me that my calling of motherhood is sacred and it's not just about cooking dinner and cleaning underwear; it's about sharing giggles, building trust, and knowing the truest, purest kind of love.
