Tonight it was just Addi and I... my Tuesday/Thursday. Nothing fantastic happened... nothing attention grabbing. But I look forward to these nights, when it's just the two of us... with fervent exhilaration. It wasn't that long ago I thought I had to give up too much to be a mom. I look back now and am embarrassed by the fear and selfishness that had taken hold of me. And as a result, I don't think my daughter truly trusted me, her mommy, until very recently.
Thankfully, the innocence of children allows for unconditional forgiveness.
