You're Three Today

My darling, I cherish you like you will never know. Maybe when you're a mommy and you hold your dearest little one in your arms, then you'll know these depths.

I waited for you, for what seemed like an eternity. Wanting you, never knowing what soul God would bring into our lives. Feeling you move within me, not wanting to be pregnant, just wanting you in my life.

You came into the world, impatient, or maybe it was me? Early, perfect, and ready to meet us. You continue to amaze with your sweetness, empathy, compassion, love, smiles, and so much more. You're so wise already love. I truly believe the children we have are perfect for us. Sometimes we must bend and break down barriers within us to raise them but, they are a perfect will.

I see it already, you're often so much like me, a little more patient than I was but, not much. You're very particular, you're bossy, you're loving and gracious. Your imagination soars right now. I hope you never lose that power. It will get you through tough times, and can make a way for you in your career life whether you choose to be a mom, or a rocket scientist. It will keep the child in you.
I love your prayers, they're so utterly precious. I love your off key singing, your intensity when you concentrate. When you ask me to "snuggle" you, I try every time to take that moment.

You were and have been, a fulfillment of a promise. You aren't really mine but, His. I'm so thankful that I have this time with you. You have healed me in so many ways and you will always be my baby.
Always, Mama
