As is always the case, I heard a song recently that made me think ...
Remind Me, by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood.
While the lyrics relate to a relationship's ebb and flow, the title alone sparked this post.
This picture, from last weekend.
As I edited it, I kept staring at it. Something about it reminded me ... of something.
Her eyes, her nose. Her scrunched little girlie face.
Oh. Oh, yes.
December 7, 2007. Nearly 1pm ... this face is burned, burned into my soul.
I hope she always reminds me of her initialness her whole life.
When she is eight, missing teeth.
When she is 13, always mad at her Daddy.
When she is 17, in love and making her Mama worry.
When she is 26, in my kitchen asking for recipes.
When she is 40, helping me deal with grief.
Remind Me, baby girl.
