Wow. I am so amazed.

Johanna just ran up to me with her arms wide open (and a huge smile on her face) and hugged me, then kissed my cheek and said "I love you, Mommy!"

Who knew a hug and a kiss could mean so much?

She has accepted my affection, but not returned it before now. I hold her hand everywhere we go, touch her cheek, play with her hair, rub her cheek, etc, to show her I love her. She usually smiles, but hasn't reached out to me yet....

Until tonight. :)

And I'm totally loving it!


  1. Selina,

    I am so happy to hear Johanna opening up like this - just amazing, a true God thing! I was just telling my husband last night, how God had your family in mind when it was her turn. Your stepping out like this is truly amazing!
