Moonbeams and Sunlight

I think of my daughter as moonbeams—beautiful, shimmery silver light and equally beautiful shadows. I picture my son more like sunlight—bright, shiny light that has a particular energy and transparency. Both are very reflective and intuitive, but each has their own, very distinct, way of relating to the world. Both can be silly, but my son has a special knack for it while my daughter tends to excel in the funny trickster category...both of these qualities we loved about Todd, and I can see their daddy reflected in them. I am so thankful to be their momma.


  1. you are so elegant. i compare my kids to a puppy (my son) and a cat (my daughter).

  2. One day your children will know that they have the been blessed with a wonderful and very special mother.

  3. If you lasso the moon and swallow it the moonbeams will shoot out of your fingers and toes.
