"If I could, I'd swim the deep
in search of treasures for you to keep."
From the first rays of the morning sun to the last nod of a tiny head at bedtime, a toddler and mother share a blissfully ordinary day. But there is nothing ordinary about the love between them -- a love that is as bright as flowers, as lovely as a song, as comforting as stars, and as deep as the ocean.
