No man is an island.

I don't know how to express what I am feeling right now, but I am going to try. Tonight as I was snuggling and kissing and being kissed by my daughter, I felt overwhelmed with gratitude that I can share my life with her. Our hearts beat next to each other and I felt belonging. I love humanity. I love that we can belong to each other. I love being a mother and neighbor and friend. Now how is that for a sappy insta post? I just love.

I love my daughter.  I love being her mother.  I love this earth where I can raise her, and the heavens where I can be with her forever.  I love God and God's plan.  I will forever be humbled that He sent her to me.  Tonight as she lifted up her head to smile and me, and kiss me, and as I could feel her heartbeat next to mine, I felt so overwhelmed.  This life is good.

No man is an island, entire of itself...
Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.
