I received the most golden of gold greetings today, and it came from none other than my shining light, my guiding star…
I was slowing down as I approached the house, being on the tail end of an hour long drive from work to home. As I started to turn into the driveway, I saw baby girl, jumping and scrambling up onto the brick pillar that contains the mailbox up front, trying to stand up – and then in pause, spotting my red car.
She stopped, her face serious, peering in. As I came closer I smiled at her, and her face went into a shocked frenzy, before breaking out into a full, whole face, smile. 🙂
“Ma! Ma!” she yelled with excited agitation, turning around to also call her Dad who was now walking up to her from the house.
As I brought the car to a stop, she jumped off the pillar and came around to my driver’s side, running into the door with a deliberate thud. I looked through the window to see her beaming at me.
Oh, my girl. All that, for me? She was that excited, to see me?
Hubbie then added moments later, after repeated hugs and kisses and lots of laughter, that she had been calling out my name, and singing it out all day…
My sweet princess. My heart sings for you, too.
