I ♥ Faces~ Sweet Dreams

As soon, as I saw the theme this week over at I ♥ Faces, I just knew exactly which photo I wanted to post. It is my all time favorite shot of Sugar Bear sleeping. It was taken back when she was only two and I was still shooting with my point and shoot. Every single time I look at it, I'm taken right back to that precious time. Sigh........I just can't help but be so very smitten with her.

It wasn't until moments ago, that I decided to not only post this photo, but also re-post my original thoughts I had while looking at it. First posted here on my blog in April of 2007.


Do you ever look into the eyes of your child and get lost? Not simply lost in thought, but truly, honestly, deeply lost in love? This happens to me everyday.

Do you ever find yourself staring at your child and seeing all the possibilities? Seeing the yesterdays, todays and tomorrows? This happens to me everyday.

Do you ever steal a moment to watch your child sleeping and find yourself imagining their dreams? Imagining their hopes? Feeling their innocence, and sharing their peace? This happens to me everyday.

Do you ever suddenly become aware that you are smiling and laughing in a state of bliss just by watching your child be who they are? Say what they say? Do what they Do? This happens to me everyday.

How on earth did I ever get so blessed? There is no other blessing like the unconditional love of your child. There is no other gift as precious, as valuable, as cherished as the admiration of your child. There are no other feelings as deep or raw as those shared between a mother and her child.
How on earth did I ever get so blessed?

Sugar Bear is:
My truth
My honesty
My love
My possibilities
My yesterday
My today
My tomorrow
My dreams
My hope
My innocence
My peace
My bliss

I am surely blessed.......surely blessed!
