In A Moment

I see eighteen different characterizations of your self. Each day I see shades of your father.  In what you read, the way you look at me, your tone of voice.  Some I love, some make me cringe.  I see my passions, my abilities my disabilities.  I see someone I know better than anyone else on this earth and someone I’ve never seen before.  I see my little girl resting her head on my chest.  I see reminiscence of the chubby little baby in that space between your nose, your cheeks, your eyes.  I see a young lady.  I see thoughts and philosophies spinning in your mind.  I see a smile, a frown, a grimace.  I see all that you were, all that you are, all that you will become in those moments when I catch you letting go.

    your words are simply heartwarmingly beautiful, and she is so lucky that you can see her x

  6. Such sweet words. I hope you’ll save them and share them with her some day. She’s a beautiful girl and you’re a good mom. It’s obvious from your words how special she is to you (as are all daughters to their mothers).

  7. Oh so sweet. I get so sentimental about my children growing up, although I want the to become who they have come here to be…it’s the letting go part I need to work on.


  8. You know…some of my favorite blog posts of all time are written by bloggers dedicated to their children. Just a simple letter or poem or thought directed right at them. Love it.
