amazing grace

I ache - my heart aches - I go for hours unthinking and then WHAM it's like bricks and this huge gaping whole left by such a small girl. Her beaming smile, giggles, backwards hugs, Hello Kitty socks, six pack, gymnist body, adorable accent (from where - not sure!), and obsession with Matt & the "Disney Game." The anticipation waiting for her to arrive - counting the months, weeks, days - meeting her, unable to hold her long enough to cuddle (always on the go). Sunday - asking her to hug me before she left - making her turn back to where I was standing and scooping her up in a bear hug - a kiss on the cheek, "I love you and I'll see you soon k?"

Amazing Grace.

  • a state of sanctification by God; the state of one who is under such divine influence;
  • elegance and beauty of movement or expression;
  • seemliness: a sense of propriety and consideration for others;
  • a disposition to kindness and compassion;
  • decorate: make more attractive by adding ornament, colour, etc.;
  • a short prayer of thanks before a meal
  • deck: be beautiful to look at;
  • the free and unmerited favor or beneficence of God;
  • a beautiful girl brought into and deeply a part of our family - now a real princess with her King but taken so soon
