Neshama - what I'm saying in my head

Neshama (Hebrewנשמה) is a Hebrew word which can mean "soul" or "spirit". 


Avery was warm and snuggly and in a very deep sleep when I awoke her this morning to get ready for school.  She looked at me with a sleepy grin and then we had this conversation:

"Mommy, do you know what I'm saying right now?  Well not with my mouth but in my head." (meaning, do you know what I'm thinking right now)

"What?"

"I'm just thanking G-d that I woke up feeling so happy and that you were here to give me a hug."
