water...














as the stream trickled between her fingers
i asked my daughter
why do you like water so much?
this is what she said:

water is smooth, and soft
it is in our blood
it is in the rivers and ocean

it is almost everything
it is in all of us
it is in our hearts.

true story.

What a wise daughter you have.
She speaks to my heart about water to be sure. And I love how she put it to words.
