Bluegrass Lullabies

C. just woke up crying and I went to rock her.  Meanwhile, my husband was downstairs listening to his stereo.  I picked up C. and she said, "I like Daddy's bluegrass music."  She then laid in my arms while I rocked her to sleep to the sweetest Appalachian melody.  I love the simple times like these.

Earlier this week I finally got the tattoo I have been wanting to get on my side:

I chose this quote because I truly believe that children become the characteristics and values with which we surround them.  At the end of the day, if C. is able to embrace grace, love and gratitude I will feel as though I have given her the tools to be at peace life.  This is a daily reminder to myself of what I need to embody within my interactions with her. Hopefully, I will take a timeout again soon to update more.
