"Mom. You're beautiful."

Spoken by a freshly-bathed, towel-wrapped little one on the couch, who is grinning ear-to-ear as she speaks the words.

And THAT is what makes motherhood the most heartwarming experience known to man.

(For the record, motherhood is simultaneously the most heart-wrenching experience know to man. I'm just sayin'....)

Ella is so right...you are beautiful, and she looks just like you!
My little guy told me the other day as I was finishing drying my hair and getting dressed for the day, "Momma, in a few minutes you will look gorgeous", lol.
Kids truly are priceless aren't they? And I couldn't agree with you more about motherhood being both heart-warming and heart-wrenching all at once...so true.
