5/9 Sweet spirit

Today I looked at you and I felt something I have not felt since you were a teeny tiny little baby, completely dependent on me. I was rushed with emotions that I did not know how to convey to you. As I looked at you playing with your friends, so full of joy and peace, I had one of those moments of grace. I kept wanting to touch you to be sure that it was real, and not a dream.

I am so proud of the person you have become. My beautiful little peace maker, you could not be more perfect in my eyes. As I looked at you I was taken aback by how much of me I saw within you. The spirit, the passion, the smile, and the strength is within you. You are me, my child.

When you fell asleep I wanted to scoop you up and hold you forever. I wanted to give you a thousand kisses, and squeeze you tightly. I cannot imagine my life without you or any of your siblings in it! I know you are growing up, and I know that is the inevitable end to my parenting, but I know no matter how hard it will be to let you go, that in you I will see my greatest accomplishment.

As I played with your hair I imagined that one day I will be helping you fix your hair for your wedding day. As I helped you get ready for the days adventures I imagined the day I send you off to college.

When I look at you, I see all of my successes. I see a bright future, and I know that I am doing right by you. I know that all of my teachings, good or bad, have help to sculpt and mold the person you are, and will be.

You are an amazing free spirit, and I am blessed to have you in my life. Thank you for helping to sculpt and mold the Mother I have become. I will love you forever and always!
