My Girl

My Girl.  My 10 year old girl who is so much older than that......there's a very special place in my heart for her.  There are so many things about her that are so enchanting and delightful and fetching.....

And her freckles? They melt my heart....She has alabaster complexion, but she has this fanciful sprinkle of golden fairy dust across her nose...the freckle picture is one of the most beautiful and eloquent pictures I've ever seen.  

I remember the day she was born, and now, to see the fringe of her eyelashes in the mellow light of sunset, to look at the gentle curve of her ruby heart stalls at the thought that young womanhood is just around the corner for My Girl.  

Lord, I look so forward to her growing up....but Lord, don't hasten that day too quickly, for I am enthralled by the beauty and grace of My Girl-Child!
