I went and bought Ella some undershirts the other day since it has turned horribly cold here in the last week or so. As we were getting dressed, Ella wanted to get her hair ready by combing it herself. I guess I always thought combing your hair the way it falls was an instinctual thing. :o) So we had a little lesson on how to actually comb her hair....just after I explained to her why she had to wear two shirts since this would be the first time she had an undershirt on.
When she got up to comb her hair, I felt like I had fallen in love all over again. Although she is always beautiful to me, in that moment I felt that I had never seen anything more beautiful in my entire life. The way she looked in the mirror and so caringly started to comb her hair made my little girl age almost 5-10 years. She looked like she was prettying herself up as she was dreaming about the cute boy she sits next to in homeroom class. It was almost like the angels were shining their bright rays down on mine and made her look so heavenly.
This is my best shot.
