8 years

8 years ago today,
I fell in love
harder and faster
than I ever imagined possible.
8 years ago today,
I learned what it means
to live unselfishly,
to worry unnecessarily,
to feel joy at the faintest smile,
to yearn for pudgy arms 
wrapped around my neck.
8 years ago today,
my world was expanded,
my view was changed,
my expectations adjusted,
my dreams altered,
my heart melted
when I became a mother
to Elizabeth.

Happy Birthday,
Elizabeth Paige!

I love you.
