"The BEST Mommy In the WHOLE World"

...that is who I am, according to Lily. She tells me every day during our snuggle time-it never gets old. She pops her thumb in her mouth and nuzzles her head in my neck while I smother her little cheeks in kisses, squeezing and rocking her. It doesn't matter what happened just an hour or two either of us. Her little thumb comes out long enough to hold my face against hers, "You are the BEST Mommy in the WHOLE world". Do I deserve her love? No way, but it is not a matter of deserving her love or her deserving mine...we just DO. I squeeze her back and tell her she is the BEST Lily in the WHOLE world and we just sit snuggling- enjoying the love we have for one another. Isn't that how it should be with God? Today, I'm going to enjoy simply LOVING Him and His tremendous love for me :)

So good to have the best DADDY in the whole world, isn't it? No one loves us as unconditionally as He does. :)

Awwww, such a sweet story. I love sweet baby love. Tyler tells me that we are going to be best friends forever. Melts my heart and makes me feel so bad for all the times when I fail to be the patient and loving mommy that I need to be.
