..someone who knows her inside out, knows her heart, her motives, her dreams. Someone who can see through the smile and see that her heart is hurting.
Someone to talk to and know that regardless what is said, unconditional love will still be the foundation of the relationship - and that will never change.
I see the need in my own little girl sometimes. The emotion that builds up from a *bad day* and the need for me just to be present with her, tickle her arms, hold her hand as she drifts off to sleep at night.
Its been a crazy tough month - ER visits with little ones, searching, lots of searching for my boy Jasper, battling a constant stream of illness - the kind of month that make me realise how tough it can be living so far away from family.
There are two other girls in this house, of the fluffy variety, who are currently curled up around my feet - I guess they need their mama too right now :o)
