much bigger (soLs)
(Lately) always painted.
Purple and pink.
Attempt to appreciate the giggles,
Even though they keep moving.
“I love being like you, Mom.”
And I realize
It’s not about the nails.
It’s much bigger.

It is much bigger. And isn't that just so cool? Savor it.
It is SO much bigger. It's always so much bigger than what it just seems to be about on the surface.
Not sure if you saw my e-mail about Boston. LMK.
Have a good night.
Beautiful. As always, Ruth. What a wise mama your girls have!
Who wouldn't love being like Ruth?!? Wise girls. They are lucky to have such an amazing mother to look up to. You captured the big inside the little perfectly. I wonder if Sam is going to want painted fingernails now… 🙂
The last lines definitely brought a smile to my face!
Yes! Ingrid just now has purple sparkly toenails. She is in heaven, showing off her toes to me, just like Mama. You are good to be patient-the little things/minutes count 'bigger'. (Please ignore the grammar!)
It is so much bigger than that. Thanks for the reminder.
A touching moment captured by an incredible mama. As Michelle says, savor it!
As all have said…oh yes so much bigger…these are the memories that will always be with you, the memories that are embedded into your heart…forever!
Patience, quiet, just being present…these are the wonderful moments to treasure.
