A love letter to my sons



Kekito and Danny,

I love you so much more than you know.  It is true that you cannot understand until you are a parent.  It is life changing, the biggest game changer there is.  My love for you is so immense and consuming.  I could sit and stare at you forever as you sleep or roll around laughing on the floor.  All the while my eyes would pour tears and tears of joy.  And I will forever thank God for the gift of you.  It's happened many times already...

I feel very badly on the days that I don't have enough patience for you.  But you need to know that my love is never lessened on those days.  On the contrary, it really does grow more and more each day.  Every smile you flash wraps me further around your finger.  I wouldn't have it any other way!

You are the loves of my life, and I will try my hardest to be there for you everyday.  I will try to be strong for you on the days you need to cry.  Even though it will rip my heart to shreds to see you go through hard times, I will always do my best to be your rock and give you support to the ends of the Earth.

I will do my best to understand each of you as individuals and learn how your minds work; though I'll never fully get to see inside.  I hope that you'll feel comfortable sharing your thoughts with me.  I promise I will do my best never to judge you.

I can promise that I'll never be a perfect mom.  I'll fall short often, and by great distances.  But I will always, always, always try.  I will do my best to teach you about love, life, and laughter.  And I will do what I think is best for you, even if it's harder for me.

All of my love is yours forever,
Mommy

It's quite true...I never knew how much my parents loved me until I had children of my own! Becoming a parent really does change everything....

*dabbing at the eyes* this was lovely, pure lovely! and that lack-of-patience-days-never-means-less-love? that was so-very-perfectly said! :)

That was beautiful. I especially like the part about how sometimes we lose patience, but they need to know you still love them. That hits very close to home.
