Running free




i love these moments...






















eilidh running to get to the van,
to load up for nursery,
to start her day in earnest...


 1, 2, 3, 4,
she counts
5, 6, 7, 8...
BLAST OFF!!


and she runs
and runs
and runs
and gets so out of breath
that she huffs and puffs,
and huffs and puffs,
as if she has just run the
longest,
most important race
of her life.

Proud of herself
she smiles a
HUGE
wide
smile
because she won!
SHE WON!


And I smile too,
secretly thanking Snappie
for carrying eilidh
while she runs
free and
independent,
and feeling
totally blessed
by the joy
she exudes
every waking moment

I spend with her.
