You Are My "Suh-shine."

Sunshine, you are my sunshine.
You make me happy when skies are gray.
You'll never know, dear, how much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away.

This is Olivia's new favorite song. When I stop singing it, she says "More suh-shine." She loves that it has the words happy and I love you in it. Ryan and I used to sing this song to her every day when she was in the NICU. It held such a deep meaning for us because our skies were the darkest shade of gray and she was the only light we could see. We sang it with such desperation because we didn't know if our sunshine would be taken away. We needed her and she will never know how much we love her. It's as if the song was written just for us. And, I'm thrilled that Olivia loves it.

She was also thrilled to see the sunshine in the book we read this afternoon. Oh...and she begged and begged to go outside and "rake" leaves! It's hard not to smile when Miss Olivia is around. She's a little ray of sunshine!

"YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE..." is a song I sang as a child and I remember it well. Great song. MJ
