Rocking chair moments
There are times when I'm really tired and I don't appreciate the time I spend with Bean in the rocking chair in her room enough. When I'm less tired, I relish it because I realize how quickly she's growing and that all too soon, she won't want her mama to be rocking her anymore. Tonight I had one of those special moments. I had a rare night out to dinner with some friends and came home just in time for Bean to need a night time snuggle. It was nice because even though she had been sleeping while I was gone, I missed her. As I was snuggling and rocking her, she drifted back to sleep and out of nowhere came these little giggles. Such a sweet sound that made me heart feel so full. I tried to imagine what she might be dreaming about and instead just felt so thankful that she has a life that lets her giggle not just when she's awake, but when she's asleep as well. It's like she knows just what I need to fill up my empty tank and remind me what a precious gift I have.
