My sweet child.
Not a day goes by that my love for you grows. Today is my birthday.
Looking into your face I experience wonder. Witness the pure joy of living.
I sit and watch you sleep, observing your innocence in the most vulnerable state.
In your slumber you breathe slowly, deeply as if to take in one intentional moment in at a time.
The way I imagine a church bell sounds, one beautiful ring after the other.
Slow and steady, and each significant in its own right.
Today you help me blow away the flames of 25 candles. Celebrating the past.
With a grateful heart I push forward to the future remaining mindful of the NOW.
You have yet so much to teach me.
We will seek a new adventure. A reason to wander and explore.
New wild and precious dreams to make up and more stories to tell!
Opportunity to fulfill your purpose. Give glory to God for being alive.
Time will take us far and yet stay still as you will always be my sweet little child.
-Love, your Mama
