Just to hold her.

I enjoy taking little Magpie outside to play, to "wing" as she says. Why do I like to take her outside? Mostly because my independent little girl gets more cuddly outside. If she hears a dog bark, an airplane vrroom by, a bird chirp a bit too loud, she says, "Hold me, Mommy." When I hold her she puts her little ear into my shoulder, her precious curls rub my cheek, she snuggles very close, and I hold her tight. Not wanting to take the moment for granted. I hold her closely and tell her that it is alright. Sometimes when she is a bit apprehensive she plays with her top lip with her pointer finger and thumb, just to pinch at it. But today, I held my little girl, sat down in my Adriondack chair, let her hug me tight and I felt the warmth of the sunshine on my face. I thanked God for the times I get just to hold her.
