Focusing on what is really important.
I have posted in the past about how sad that I have been about never seeing myself in my child, even though Maddie looks a great deal like us. Today I was just looking at her and loving her and realized that I will see myself in her in ways that are important. It doesn't matter if she has my eyes or not, but it does matter if she has a heart for God. She may not have my curly hair but she can have my passion for reading. Maybe she won't have hubby's chin but she can have his love of laughter and sense of humor. Her physical characteristics are not important, but her character is. It is in this way that we can see ourselves in our Maddie.
