When I was a baby, my mother would sing “You are my Sunshine” to me. Going back and forth with nursery themes, I finally decided to use the song as the theme when we found out we were having a girl. The day Emma was born started out as a cloudy and rainy day. But as the day wore on and Emma was closer to making her entrance to the world, the clouds broke and the sunshine came. And that is how life has been with Emma ever since. Yes there are days that aren’t perfect (rainy), and I feel like I would rather be back working a full time job. But, even on those days a giggle, a smile or hearing “Mama” can make a world of difference.
I took the cover photo for my blog when I was out running in the rain in Steamboat Springs this past Labor Day weekend. The view reminded me of Emma and how you can find a little ray of sunshine in even the hardest of times. Thank you Emma for being the silver lining in the clouds- for being my little ray of sunshine!
