This magical smile that lights her from within.
Her clear blue eyes twinkle and her face crinkles with laughter.
I sometimes catch my breath, she sees me.
Since the day she was born my heart quickens each time she looks at me.
Each time our eyes meet is a sparkling realization.
She sees me.
She is a direct gift from God and she sees me.
I strive to feed her laughter, her good nature, her bright smile.
I live to see that smile.
I once read a book where the mother addressed her daughter as "Treasure". Ever since then I look at Neely and think of her as my treasure.
