To Mary Kate, from Audrey

Tonight I was nursing Mary Kate and picked up this lovely little devotional my sister bought me called "Words to Warm A Mother's Heart." I was reading aloud when I came across a quote that sums up some of my hopes for my little girl. So, to Mary Kate, some advice from a lovely woman.

For attractive kips, speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair, Let a child run her fingers through it once a day.
For poise, walk with the knowledge that you'll never walk alone.
~Audrey Hepburn~

4 Fridays ago today, I saw my daughter's gorgeous blue eyes for the first time. And while I still see those eyes mostly between the hours of 1am and 5am, my love for her and gratitude to God for her grow every minute.I look forward to a lifetime of sharing dreams together.
