The pure innocence, love, and joy that comes from a child is magnificent. In these past few days I have been incredibly grateful for my girls. I’ve felt the sadness and the heartache that we’ve all felt since hearing the news on Friday.
I’ve made a promise to myself that I will not show any sadness around my girls. If I need to cry, I will cry when they aren’t around. But when I am with them, it’s all about them and the happy and joy that they bring.
Avery is at an age where she is always bringing a smile to my face. It’s her happiness that brings joy to my heart, especially in a time that I need it most. There are so many things that she does that brings a smile to my face. It’s the little things in life that can bring pure joy.
