I tell Charlotte that I love her every chance I get. The child hears me say it no less than 10 times per day. Tonight, while Charli lay back against me and watched my face intently, I told her I loved her. “Love you!”
She looked up at me with her big, blue eyes, and said “lub u.”
For the first time!
She smiled a smile that would melt the coldest if hearts.
I will remember the look on her face and the deep connection within our stares for the rest of my life.
I have been loved, but there is none greater than this!
