I never expected that being your mother would be so complex and delicate. Our love and bond is like nothing I have ever known. It has revealed sides to me that I never knew existed: my innate nature to protect, to be patient, to teach – it is so powerful. So much so, that I expect there will be moments where it temporarily breaks down. There will be days where I disappoint and upset you and it will only ever be because of the power of my love for you. There will be times where you may not understand me in a moment, but please only take away from that situation that my actions are completely and utterly driven by love.
Thank you for continuing to shape me into who I am today. Thank you for challenging me in new ways and for always seeking me for your strength. It reminds me that even when I feel most vulnerable and invisible, you still see my light. You really are quite extraordinary for such a little person. I feel as though I owe you the world, but love doesn’t quite work like that. So, I am going to continue to pour into you, as you do me and may we always flow together. I love you until the end of infinity.
P.s the warm fuzzing feeling is because you are smiling in your sleep tonight. May you always sleep this happily baby girl.
