our blue eyed girl in west virginia this past july
Lily’s eyes are so blue lately.
When she was still in my belly, I would often fall asleep thinking about what she would look like.
I would often think of her with blue eyes.
Never in a million years did I ever think them to be as beautiful as they are.
I think she’s pretty lucky.
Yesterday was not a good day for me.
It was the kind of day that I wish I could have pulled the curtains shut and closed out the world.
But, we all know that full time mommies can’t do that.
I was angry, tired, resentful, depressed, claustrophobic, blue.
Here is a picture of “Woman with crossed arms” from Picasso’s Blue Period.
