What a Girl Needs

"Mom, when you don't hold me for a week or feels...
        like you've not held me for a week or two."  Princess Alexis
Talk about a 2x4 between the eyes.

At 5 years old, Alexis, is tittering between wanting to grow up and still clinging to mama wanting attention.    She loves being held and rocked and she glows with pride when I acknowledge her accomplishments.   She loves for me to take a minute or two and rock together.
(princess Alexis playing in the rain yesterday)

It is an important part of growing up.

There's curiosity of
life and new adventures
                     but a girl  needs
that secure knowledge
    knowing mama's arms will always be there
              and she'll listen when life gets tough.

p.s. Thanks for always being there, mom.  Love Maria Jean

Such a sweet reminder! I want to go rock my "babies"!! Honestly, at 24 . . . ok 27, I still crawl into my mom's lap for a cuddle every now and then! Sad or sweet? Oh well, you are never to old to want some hugs from your mom! :)

So sweet, and very true. Hold that baby. They sure grow fast.

Thanks again so much for your editting tips. I went to my Picassa and noticed this little PICNIK button that I had before always ignored. Oh my, it opened my world. I could spend all day on that. Of course, my hubby and children might not appreciate that, but I could that's all I'm sayin' :-)

We (my daughter and I) just found your blog. She said several times that you have the cutest little girls. I too am a mother of four, but I was only blessed with one princess. Thanks for sharing your heart with so many. I always wanted to be a missionary, but God has had other plans for us.
I could go on and on, but I am sure you have things to do. Have a blessed day!
