Little Ayden...

This is my last night with little Ayden 
so today while mom and dad were out
we did a little photo shoot 

And I am wondering while I am taking the pictures 
if there is a way to embed a Nana's love in a photograph

I am wondering if
when these little eyes look at me
she knows 
just how much I love her

I never thought there would be anything more powerful than a mother's love
I am here to tell you that nothing compares to the love that 
experience, distance, time, and wisdom harvests

It is like these little babies arrive like a drink of water to a wilting flower
giving me the elusive hope and fortitude to carry on

There is a twinkle in her eyes
her smile is infectious
her laugh contagious
her trust fully and completely intact

Do you remember when your trust was full and undiluted? 
Would you not just give everything to feel so completely
and in awe of the world

Are they not the reason for the season,
to celebrate
the joy and wonder in the most simple of things the world has to offer?
