The Sweetest Words

The sweetest words ever spoken to me are the words that compliment my daughter for the precious little soul she is. They are the words that come from the mouths of strangers when you least expect them. They are the words that make you smile, inside and out, and leave you giddy with pride for the remainder of your day.

The smile on my face this morning was made just a little wider when an elderly man looked at Oia, smiled, shook his head with what seemed to be nothing but awe and said very softly...

"...an Angel with a pony-tail."

That she is. How lucky I am to be her mommy...


  1. How true, an angel with a pony-tail! What a beautiful, amazing, moment!
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love it, she IS an angel with a ponytail. :)

  3. Oh what sweet words....You are BLESSED to be her mommy! She is such a cutie...one of a kind!

  4. Awe! He is so right! What perfect, perfect words!

  5. Ahhh! So cute...

    It's interesting. Whenever we're out with Ben and he uses his walker, I find the ones that comment the most are the elderly men. They are so interested. And so nice about it too.

    I'm sure that comment just made your day!

  6. You are lucky indeed. Everything I have read so far on your blog indicates how amazing she is...and how amazing you are as a parent.

  7. Aww. So sweet. She sure looks like an angel.
