To the littlest that stole my heart,
You did not easily come into this world, but you sure were easy to love from day one. You have been the sweetest thing my arms have ever held. Your smile is contagious and your dimples are the light in any room. I want to embed your giggle into my memory forever.
You showed me that my heart could double in size overnight. You made me realize that even though everything had changed, I felt more ‘me’ than I had ever felt before. You taught me that my body is not only magical, it is powerful, beautiful and stronger than anything I’ve ever known. You made me feel more loved than I’ve ever felt before.
You have a bright beautiful journey ahead of you. A book you get to write all yourself. May you never let anyone sway your handwritten pages. May you never plagorize anothers story, but follow your own authentic path of chasing your dreams. May you always trust your soul, as it will lead you in the right direction. And if you ever feel lost, know I am right there.
From day one, you were in tune with your surroundings. You are connected. You are smart. You are brave. You are beautiful. You are so so happy.
You are cautious. But, you are courageous and bold.
You are always laughing, smiling, dancing and being oh so playful.
Don’t you ever let anyone dim that light of yours.
I have a zillion hopes for you my dear. A zillion.
And I hope to tell you all about them over breakfast’s, lunch’s, dinner’s, coffee’s and wine. And over laughs, tears, hugs, kisses, telephone and text conversations over the decades to come.
But I do know that above all, I wish for you to have children of your own if that is something that you hope for. Only then will you ever be able to understand the depth of my love for you. There are no words in all of this world’s languages that will ever do this love justice. I can only hope that you grow up to feel it.
