Two seconds

It was two seconds of a glimpse into our future.
I was holding Addie and put her down so she could get a toy. My intent was to stand her up, grab her hand and help her to the toy box. Before I could grab her hand, two seconds passed.
Two seconds of her standing alone.
Two seconds of independence.
Two seconds where she had no idea that another miracle was forming.
Two precious seconds.
I don't care if it takes another two years.
Those two seconds filled my heart with enough hope to get me through two more years.
If that is how long it takes, so be it.
It will be done.
