Letters to our children

little red-

I always say you are the surprise I never knew I needed so badly.  KK was in school & Trey man was getting ready to start that next fall.  I worried b/c I just didnt know what I would do… I had been taking care of kids for so long that the thought of not having a little one at home with me during the day bothered me.  Then came you.  You loved me from the very first moments of your life.  Even as a baby you would look at me with this look… like I was the most amazing thing.  To this day you still make me feel like the most loved person alive.  The way you’ll stare at me… & take your hand and stroke my cheek.  How to tell me “I just love you too much mom”.  I really think you were sent just for me…. at a time in my life where I would have spent most of my days missing childhood… those days were now filled with the most joyous presence.  You.  I have found I’m more patient with you…….. I cherish things now I would have once overlooked.  I’ve soaked you in….. for I know now how fast childhood passes.  How tomorrow… you wont be just like you were today.  Tomorrow you might have a new favorite color… or a new favorite stuffed animal.  I watch you… I capture you.  My love for you is so strong that at times I feel my heart will burst out of my chest.  Thank you for loving me…. for letting me enjoy childhood again.  For making me feel like the most amazing person on earth.  The truth is… I just love you too much.  My sweet little red.

You will never have this day with your children again.
Tomorrow, they will be a little older then they were today.
This day is a gift, breathe and notice, smell and touch them;
study their face and little feet and pay attention.
RELISH THE CHARMS of THE PRESENT.
Enjoy today Momma, it will be over before you know it!
