Angel on earth

What did I ever do to be blessed with such a great little girl? Miss O is my angel on earth! She is so brilliant and she amazes us with her intelligence every day. Not only is she smart, but she's such a caring little girl. Brian has decided to take the job he was offered and he turned in his letter of resignation today. The resignation went better than expected, but Brian just really feels bad about leaving and he's scared to death of where he's going - not that it's a scary place, but it's entirely different then what he is used to and is not where he saw his path going. He came home from work today and was just talking about how scared he was. He picked Olivia up and she said, "what's wrong daddy?"
daddy: daddy's just scared about his new job
Miss O: But God's with you, right?...and he will help you not be scared.
Brian and I just stood there crying. She can make you feel better in a split second. When I was in labor for 3 days with Jesse a lot of my friends and family offered to take Olivia to their house to watch her, but we insisted on keeping her at the hospital because she made us smile - at that time, it was like she was the only thing worth living for and we needed her there with us.
I just don't know what we ever did to deserve such a wonderful little girl - Thank you God for my angels in heaven, but thank you so much for trusting me with this very very special angel on earth!
