The Smile That Rights The Wrongs of the World

The holiday was bearable, and that's all there is to say about that.

No matter what did or what could have happened, none of it would have made a difference to me because of that smile right there. How can anyone be sad when they see that?

This was Sweetpea's very first Thanksgiving, and I think she enjoyed herself. We all certainly enjoyed her. Watching her grow up these past almost-seven months has been a joy.

Every time I see her I notice new things - her little personality starting to show itself, how she crooks one eyebrow like her grandmother, how her facial expressions are so very...well, expressive.

She never ceases to amaze me.

I've experienced many kinds of love in my lifetime. I love my family more than words, I love my friends with all of my heart, I love the wonderful men that have shared my life with me for a time in so many special ways, and I love my godchildren to absolute pieces...but there is something different about the love you feel for a child of your blood. Sweetpea is my brother's child, she is my niece, she shares my surname, she is *family* - and there really aren't words for how my heart aches for her when I'm away from her or how much I truly love that little girl every single day.

She means so much to me; to all of us. When everything in the world seems to be going to hell in a handbasket, there she is - making all of us smile, laugh, and remember the importance of love and family.

I love you, my Sweetpea.

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is
    entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Everything posted made a lot of sense. However, what about this?
    suppose you composed a catchier post title? I mean,
    I don't wish to tell you how to run your website, but what
    if you added a post title to possibly grab folk's attention? I mean Digitopus
    » Blog Archive » The Smile That Rights The Wrongs of
    the World is a little vanilla. You could peek at Yahoo's front page and note how they create post headlines to grab
    viewers to click. You might add a video or a
    picture or two to get people excited about everything've written. Just
    my opinion, it would make your blog a little livelier.

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Safari.

    I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet
    browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Kudos
