Baby Grins and Momma's Tears

Peyton just rewarded me with a giant-cheeked, crescent-eyed toothless grin. 

I thought my heart would burst.  So I bawled my eyes out instead, soaking her chubby cheeks as I kissed her over and over again.

How in the world is it possible to love so much?

And how in the world is is possible that I will wake up tomorrow and find my love for my family even stronger? 

I am so blessed.
