swimming

We are having fabulous weather here in California.
The pool is fantastic.
Literally right on the beach.
After she swam,
Hannah and I were able to spend some
time just digging our feet into the sand,
feel the warm sun on our face,
and just talk.
Mother and Daughter.
I wanted to tell her how very proud I am of her.
How, even if she thinks I don't know it, she is very
dedicated to this sport and her hard work
pays off every single time she dives into the pool.
Even when she has an off swim, she must know
that there will always be another chance to do better.
That it breaks my heart when she is sad, or
mad or disappointed.
And that I just love her.

Sounds like the perfect time and place for a mother daughter moment. Enjoy the moment and as that Finding Nemo fish would say, "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming!"

Nice post, Gin. Glad you were able to spend some time together.

aw. Mommies and Daughters have the most special relationships... being there for her, her friend and confidante... in addition to her role model and teacher... it is so complex and so deep and so amazing.
I thank God every day for my daughter. And I can feel that you do, too.
