E's behavior had been turbulent so when she was finally calm the blessing that calm always is was extra sweet. She snuggled up on me. "I love you," I told her, kissing the top of her hair. She surprised me, next. She looked up and kissed me, a most rare and therefore precious act. I love you, too, Mama!
We were quiet, together.
She looked up brightly and opened her arms in a big circle. Mama! We love ourselves really, really a lot!
I think she meant "each other," but I don't really know for certain.
