Love Is Spoken Here

Do you ever have those moments with your kids where you wish you could freeze time, or grab the video camera and force them to do what they just did one more time? Nora literally melted my heart tonight.

We were in the tub and she was sitting in my lap facing away from me. I was singing her songs. Itsy Bitsy Spider, Twinkle Twinkle, I Am a Child of God. I started singing Love Is Spoken Here, when she turned around, cupped my face in her sweet little hands and gave me the most beautiful smile I've ever seen.

She doesn't ever do this kind of thing so it's hard to even relay how much it means to me.

I hope she does feel that love is spoken in our home. I hope it's a place she feels safe and protected, loved and cherished. Because there isn't anything more important to me as a Mother than that.
