My girl is home after being gone for three days with her dad. I don't like it when she is gone, it feels terribly empty.
I waited out on the sidewalk when I heard the truck coming down the street. She jumped out and ran to me, jumping into my arms to give me a giant hug and a kiss, with a "I had SO much fun, but I missed you, mamma!"
Yes, this is what happiness looks like. How lucky I am that she is mine.
