Stories of me…naturally me

The thunder rumbled outside and the music played on the inside. The dice were rolling and the smiles were contagious. Finally, several moments of pure bliss and I had no idea what was coming next. After our game, while Jonathen hunted for our next game, you came to me arms up high and asked me to dance. I scooped you up and you snuggled in. I could feel it within every ounce. Connection and surrender. One of the most beautiful feelings that you have taught me to cherish and not take for granted in this world.

So we danced, and danced, song after song. My arms ached with all 47 pounds of you, but it didn’t matter. For I know one day you will be too big to dance in my arms…

I am so thankful for sunday afternoons, for today this home became OUR home. Filled with contagious smiles and beautiful connection. May we be blessed with many more.

Most days I just crave a glimpse. A glimpse into your world. Your eyes tell a story like none other.

When our eyes meet, even for just one minute I melt right in. I study, I treasure, I feel giddy within. For a minute in your world is worth a million in mine.

Every morning you stand at the top of the stairs and say “Good Morning” as you wait for someone to answer. Then you start your way down the stairs where I always seem to meet you half way.

You greet me with the sweetest smile and it starts my day off smiling too.

Good morning my sunshine…

I am certain it doesn’t get more real than this.

Jackson Birthday blog

I can hardly believe you are four years old today and at the same time I can barely believe you have only been in our life for four years because it feels like you have always been. You have grown so much this year. You continue to show me what love really is. How life should be lived one moment at a time and how the next or the last do not matter.

For your fourth birthday I wish for you:

– a year full of quiet snuggles that bring you peace

– a year full of belly giggles that make you laugh

– a year full of friendship that brings you connection

– a year full of family that shares your love

Love,

Mom
