Rear View Mirror

I caught this glimpse of Kaliel this morning and it brought me to tears.  For the longest time, I looked in my rear view mirror and longed to see a little face looking back at me.  Sometimes I would imagine, pretend you might say, that there was someone smiling back at me.  I had lost hope that it would ever happen for me, that I would ever be singing to my own son or daughter as I drove around town.  But here she is, flesh and blood and all mine, and I cannot contain my joy.  My thankfulness.  She is beautiful and she is perfect and she is real and I am so very blessed.
