Today I chased joy down the hall and back again
It floated among the giggles in the air
It spun and danced and asked me to join
It folded its tiny hands for prayer

Today I caught joy in the crayon marks and play-doh
In an extravagant feast of plastic food
It kissed my arm and said, “oww ov ou”
It gave me peace when the day was through

My heart is so full tonight. Full of love for my daughter. Full of thankfulness that she is healthy, that she is here. I wish I could give these thoughts life in words, but I can't. There is just simply too much.
