Marvel.  As a verb.
January 23, 2010

We marvel all the time.

We marvel at our blessings.  We have a healthy child, a beautiful little girl, we whisper in the dark.  The best half of you plus the best half of me.  And then we kiss.

We marvel at our love.  We have a strong marriage and a happy family.  I love you even with morning breath, he says with a kiss.  I love you back, I chuckle.

We marvel at our luck.  We laugh together every day, all three of us.  She adores you, I sigh.  He smiles at me as he launches our daughter into the air.  Her giggles are contagious.

We marvel at her the most.  At the shape of her ears and the color of her eyes.  At the curl of her grin and the chub on her thighs.  At her vitality and at her exploration of her world.

Sometimes we wonder and sometimes we doubt.  We speculate, we admire, we experience, we consider, we deliberate, we adore, we reflect.

But more than anything, we marvel.

    The marveling is constant, isn’t it?  I don’t think it will ever stop.  I hope it never stops.

    Thanks for visiting my little blog. I think you were speaking of OC Family Mom’s, which is an online community that was started by the local magazine here in Orange County (and if I can brag for a few words, my kiddo is on the cover of the January issue).  I haven’t found any great meet-ups yet, but should do a better job of looking around for one for play dates and more adult interaction (slightly starved here).

    Have a wonderful weekend of marveling!
