.:the pea:.

"It doesn’t make sense to call ourselves ugly, because we don’t really see ourselves. We don’t watch ourselves sleeping in bed, curled up and silent with chests rising and falling with our own rhythm. We don’t see ourselves reading a book, eyes fluttering and glowing. You don’t see yourself looking at someone with love and care inside your heart. There’s no mirror in your way when you’re laughing and smiling and happiness is leaking out of you. You would know exactly how bright and beautiful you are if you saw yourself in the moments where you are truly yourself."

I don't know who wrote this (I've looked for it, but everybody was referencing back to someone else), and it may sound tacky or something out of a self-help book, but all it makes me think about is the little one we have here... (ok, truth be told, even if it were a quote about potatoes somehow my mind would go in that direction anyway, still...) she turned out to be the most beautiful person in the world because most of those true moments I got to experience first hand... And there is another one, the most amazing thing in the world which is the sparkle of knowledge... The flicker that goes through her eyes the moment she understands something or makes some connection...

she teaches you patience, and learns about it as well....

she is fierce and curious, but all the same uncertain and afraid of the unknown...


she makes you find awe on a shop display of balloons...

and brightens up your mornings with wrestling-tickling-giggling matches...

she is everything I need to learn, and more...
