I would multiply and hold onto precious moments spent with you a little bit longer…
Time is so much more fleeting than we realize.
I wasn’t ready for you to marry and start a family of your own. I knew it would change our relationship and I’ve never been very good at sharing…
If I’m honest… I grieved a little, okay a lot.
I thought maybe there wouldn’t be any more precious moments for us…
But then your son was born and you allowed me to be there in the delivery room to share in your joy, and it was an amazing experience.
Lil girl, you now have a lil girl too, and perhaps one day you will know exactly how I feel?
I will forever remember fondly our week long camping trip, just us girls and how you gleefully hopped us every chance you got in the Trouble game.
A college visit home when the house was full and we said you would bunk with us, only to watch you run and hop right in the middle of our king size bed laughing as you staked your claim on mattress space.
You were always an imp!
A full week of just you and me time when you were a teenager will always be special to my heart. Chicken Caesar Salad please (No Ladybugs)
Time and space separate us presently and it’s hard to partake in each other’s lives…
But I know going forward that our moments, when we can manage them, will be different…but no less precious.
