I never want to forget this latest cute thing Alayna said. We were doing our goodnights and giving kisses and she said, "We kiss on the lips a lot!" I said, "Yes, we do! Why do we do that?" Her response cracked me up and made me feel like the most blessed mom on earth! She said, "Because we love each other so much!!" I am so glad she gets it! I am so glad she feels loved by me, in spite of the days when everything irritates me and the house is never clean enough to make me happy. How I long to be the perfect parent and oh, how I fall so short of that on a daily basis. What joy to know that I am loved in spite of that! What a beautiful reminder that my Jesus loves me just the same way. I am so thankful to know that deep into my soul and for a precious little girl to remind me on a regular basis.
