Aaaaaaand life is back to normal again

The BEST feeling is hearing my little girl squeal "MOMMY!" and launch herself into my arms for a huge hug! Matt brought Em back tonight a little before 6. I couldn't even look at him b/c of yesterday. My focus was solely on Emily. For the first 10 minutes that she was back home from her first overnight at Matt and his hussy's place she just sat on my lap and hugged me and wanted me to hold her "like a baby". She told me that she "misseded" me soooo much and she was so sad that she didn't get to talk to me to say goodnight or have me sing her some lullaby's over the phone. I explained to her that I had tried to get daddy to let me talk to her but that it didn't happen but that me not being able to tell her goodnight wouldn't happen again any other time that she was over there.

She's sleeping now and had me sing and sing and sing to her until she fell asleep an hour ago. As soon as I saw her, I felt better, I could take a deep breath again. My small world was right again. I know that it may not make much sense to many of you out there, but when your child is everything to you and it's been just the two of you for over half of her young life, there is a bond and a closeness that is unmatchable except for the one that you have with God if you have a close, personal relationship with Him.

My daughter is my biggest blessing and my greatest gift. As the first line to the doxology says "Praise God from Whom all blessings flow..." Amen and amen!
Here are some pics of Em and myself from Easter/flower pics. Enjoy!

For some reason my mom likes taking my picture against a tree. She has a lot of pics of me in my teens and early 20's against one of the trees in her back yard.

The next pics are of Em in a HUGE bluebonnet field outside of Brenham, TX - where Blue Bell Icecream is made. YUM! I love these pictures of her, especially the pouty one where she just wanted to play in the flowers instead of taking pictures. LOL! :) There's nothing like the blue, blue skies of Texas!

I love the pouty picture best! It would be a great one to enter in a photo contest. I love the buttercups in the field too. Thanks for sharing it. You have a lovely daughter.

Such lovely young women!

And you should know... it does get better. Time has an amazing way of smoothing over rough spots.
