a series of moments. episode 1.

21 Mar

I’d been waiting on this moment for a year.

Since the day she had made her grand entrance into this big, beautiful world; full of spunk and stubbornness and life.

She wasn’t mine. She wasn’t even blood; but she was the daughter of someone I had always considered to be my soul sister, so in some ways she was mine.

Mine to love and to spoil. Because what is life without a whole lotta love; love for those around you and of course, love for yourself.

And mine to teach.

To teach that playing outside is best done when you can wear pink and get dirty all at the same time. To teach that sometimes a good curse word and a hearty cry are the best cures for a bad day. And mine to teach that feeling is important. So important. Because without all the feels you would never be able to discern the good from the bad, the truly scary from the scary-thrilling, or the happy from the sad.

So there we were.

Me, waiting on this moment for a full year. A year since she burst onto the scene, ready to take on the world, head-on.

And her, unknowing of the ride that she was about to embark on.

We studied each other for moment, me standing in the doorway of her home and her, from across the foyer. And as I knelt down to my knees she grinned, her dimples deep and joyful. Then she shrieked and toddled my direction ready to be swooped up and smothered in smooches.
