I stare at your sleeping face, thanking God for the little blessings in my life.
I feel your tiny hands resting on my cheek as you gaze at me.
On the nights when the nightmares become too scary, I hold you tight and remind you that you’re safe.
I cherish the days watching you run around the house or giggling at the silliest things.
When I walk into the office and close the door behind me, catching a glimpse of your sweet eyes peering through the glass, as if you don’t understand why I closed you out.. its to give you the best life I can possibly give.
There are moments when I sit quietly, while you’re wondering if something is wrong.. not at all, my darling. Mommy is just planning our future adventures and making adjustments to ensure that we enjoy our life together.
Sometimes Mommy is tired. There are so many things I want you to understand, yet I know that now is not the time. Enjoy your precious life.. be little, for it flashes away far too quickly.
When you walk out the door without me, know that my heart counts the minutes until your return. There is nothing more comforting than knowing you’re home with me, safe and sound.
One of the biggest challenges in my life is allowing the world to touch your tender soul. I want to keep you safe, pure and untangled from the scariness that can linger. I want to keep my arms around you more than you’ll ever know.
Although I know I was meant for you, I know that you are not mine forever; you are you, one and only, you. You are your future, my present, and you embody a hope that this world can learn from.
You have taught me more in your few years of existence than I could’ve ever learned elsewhere.
I love you, my dear. God made me your mom for a reason and all I can say is Thank You!
