|You Are My Sunshine Print|
He giggled – totally tickled to have captured my attention. He stepped on a couple of necklaces, finding his way to me, and then plopped right down in my lap. And we just sat there, snuggling in the sunlight.
As we cuddled, I was transported back to the day he was born. When I was pregnant with Tru, I often wondered if he liked listening in as I sang bedtime songs to his big brother. I got my answer hours after he was born: cradling him in my hospital bed, I started to sing “You Are My Sunshine.” His eyes shot open – SO WIDE – and he looked at me with this deep knowing, as if to say, “Ohhhhhhh. It’s YOU!”
It was the first of so many sunshine moments in our life together. Every snuggle, every giggle is a sweet reminder of what really matters; a chance to let the light in and live in the now.
