Big Girl Bed
When I was putting her into bed tonight, she melted my heart and I hope I never forget the moment. Sometimes, I write posts to let people know what's going on at the Murdaugh's, this post, however, is for me to remember when she is 16 and hates me. Ha.
Zeda asked me to lay with her and I said I would, but only for a couple of songs. She said, "lay down mommy and close your eyes." I did and started to sing. She said, "no mommy sing, Zeza." So I stopped and she put her hand on my face and said all the words to Twinkle Twinkle, Jesus Loves Me, You Are My Sunshine and The ABC's. When she was done, she paused and I opened my eyes. She was looking at me and said, "I wove you mommy." It's one thing to hear her sweet little voice say it when you ask her to, but it's another when it's all on her own and she says it because she feels it.
Those little words turned a rough day into something glorious. I'm so thankful for my sweet Zeda girl.
