Humbled.

Tonight as I was going to bed at 8:30 for the 3rd night in a row because my toddler refuses to sleep in her own bed, I was complaining because I wasn't tired yet and just wanted "me" time. 

God truly opened my eyes and I realized I wouldn't trade these moments with my daughter for anything:

Madi's favorite song is "A Little Bit Stronger" by Sarah Evans. I don't know what it is about this song but it's the only song that I listen to that she likes. It's known as "our" song if you're ever in my car with us. So, tonight as she was having trouble falling asleep I played it really low on my phone and sang along, holding Madi in my arms. She started singing along too - just at the end of each verse because those are the words she knows and half asleep, she held her hand up to spin her finger at just the right time. At that moment my heart smiled and I felt the biggest rush of pure love imaginable. My baby girl and I were singing a song together and nothing else in the world mattered at that very moment.

Here I was, whining about having to go to sleep with my daughter, and then God gives me this amazing moment that can never be lost from my memory. Thank you Jesus for blessing me with my daughter and for humbling me when I need it most. 


I wouldn't trade these moments with my little girl for anything in this world.

When stuff like that happens, doesn't it make you feel so selfish and small? I always forget that they think we are the bomb.com at that age.
