different but the same


chin up, originally uploaded by jowrites365.

as she gets older, there's an increasing amount of time that i don't spend with sweet m. she goes to kindergarten, she goes to church classes and activities, she plays outside with her friends on her own. today i've been thinking about how i've been seeing her in different ways lately.
when she was little i only ever saw her from up close because i was always right next to her; holding her or only a few feet away while she played on the floor. now i see her inside a school bus while i watch inside the house. today i saw her standing at the pulpit in front of hundreds of people at church.
it's so strange and wonderful to look at her in these different ways.
