Forever

Sometimes I just look at her. And soak her in. 

The pain of not being able to protect her from hurts and disappointments is what makes parenting so complicated and yet wakes you up each day and keeps you going.... trying over and over.

Next week I'll watch as she leaves to have surgery on her foot. 

I couldn't change this part of her story. The book. The prayers. It wasn't enough.
