My Daughter’s Smile

My Daughter’s Smile
I have spent a lifetime working toward that brilliant, instant, pure uplifting.
The corners of that perfect mouth, turning up to God. Never forgetting the miracle that she came in part from my own imperfect body.
I love you, Hayley Noelle. Now.
My moving is not away. This world doesn’t work that way. There is no leaving love. No closed doors. We are two women, with journeys that come together, over and over. It’s a circle, you know?
A grand circle, too.
Never forget that circles never end.
Future, past, and today, this moment, all of these are ours—to share.
My Daughter’s Smile is a miracle.

Love, Mom
January 2014
