Awe......



Today, Emma Sage slept the day away. She was only up a few times, and then off to sleep she would go. When she was awake, she would flash me a sweet smile and try so hard to 'perk' up.

I sat for a long time just watching her. I find that I have done this from the moment she was born.....I stare at her in awe. I marval at her, as I see perfection. It always makes me wonder how others can see our children with Down syndrome as anything less. I look at her sweet face, her little fingers, her soft skin. I am always struck with awe at her being........

So, while the children all napped, I took a little 'me' time and visited some of my favorite blogs to read.

I was struck by this post and how it touched me so ~ as I read it right after my moments of sitting and watching my sleeping little girl, in awe of her being.......and with great thanks that she was home with me, safe and healing.

I highly recommend this post to read......it will truly touch you and leave you in awe of life.
