Just a normal night at the Wells house. Dinner cooking – kids playing/screaming – eating dinner – cleaning up dinner – kids playing/screaming – parents rolling on the floor with kids – bath time – bedtime.
However there was a very special moment that was unlike any other Wells family night. As Jodi was putting down Jack, Cora and I were getting ready for bed in her room. A sweet sounding melody arose from the CD player right outside her room. Cora looked up at me and said “Daddy, can we go out there and dance like brides?” My heart melted right there.
We quickly found ourselves holding hands swaying back and forth to music. Cora looked up at me with the sweetest smile I have ever seen. I have no idea exactly how she felt in that moment, but the look she gave me said “I feel loved, safe, and important.” I hope she knows that she is all of those things.
I am so blessed to be a father and to have gotten to share a beautiful moment like that with my sweet baby girl.
