They may take our lives, but they can’t take our Threedom!

Tonight, as my wee girlie lay beside me, falling asleep, she said to me “Mommy, what if I miss being three?”.  So we had a quiet talk about aging, and how when you leave one time behind there is always something new and exciting on the horizon.  You may sometimes look back and miss something you used to do, but there is always so much joy to be had that it makes sense to keep looking forward.

Today was a good day.  We enjoyed every last bit of the wee girlie’s threedom.  Three really was awesome, but four?  I know it’s going to be all that and more.  She’s grown and changed so much, and while she drives me absolutely batty at times, she really is my everything.  She’s my inspiration, and my driving force.  It is for her that I do all these crazy, time consuming things.  It is for her that I need to believe.  People can make a difference, and for her I do my very best.
