I found myself trying to scrape up the pieces of my heart that were in a puddle on the floor after this happened to me: recently my 1 year old daughter wrapped her arms around my neck for the first time and squeezed with all her might, cooing her “I love you” tones into my neck and shoulder.
If you know me well you may realize how much that meant to me and boy, I melted. Nearly cried right there enveloped in her full-body embrace (yep, she was hugging with her little legs too)!
Have you ever experienced a moment that just melted you?
