My daughter, age 3, uttered these words while we were sitting at dinner at the Ross Park Mall Cheesecake Factory. The location wasn’t unusual or special, but her words were.
Hearing them from such a little girl struck me as so deep. I don’t know where she heard that, or if she heard that before, but it made me happy to hear her say them. We weren’t doing anything special, just out to dinner together, but I think that was the point. We had spent the weekend together visiting their grandparents, having quality family time. Which makes me happy. And you know what, I love my life too.
