My beautiful girlchild,
You just woke up from your short nap. Â Through my tears, I blow bubbles for you not really caring where they land. Â Smiling as you chase them down with your index finger out, ready to pop them. You always lift my heart.
Life has not been easy these last few months. Â This last week has been especially heart wrenching. Â Difficult decisions are made even more excruciating. Â So much has to be taken into account. Â You are always first in my decisions. But the grief over our loss lingers on. Â I hope to one day explain everything to you. Â I hope to use this time to illustrate to you how good our God is.
I pray that you have less strife in your journey. Â I think every mami prays for that. Â Praying that you will learn from our mistakes and by doing so, we would find purpose for our temporary situations. Â My pain would be worth it if it means that you don’t have to experience it later on in life.
I am praying that God continue to keep you as He has since he knitted you in my womb. Â That you continue to be the happy and loving child that you are. Â That I do a good job with and for you. Â I pray that I am a good example for you. Â That our relationship will flourish through good times and bad. Â Frog princess, you are the light of my life and I feel blessed and humbled that God saw fit to give me such a special child! Â It is my sincerest prayer that you continue to grow beautiful and strong with your faith firmly planted in the One constant in our lives.
And, as you say at bedtime… ‘men!
