You don’t understand this right now, but I’ve made some great connections online – people that know about you and laugh with you and smile at you.
One of these people I connected with lost his wife to cancer today, and that means that two little boys lost their mom. I’ve been crying for her and for them, the time they lost. I think about you and me and what would happen if I got sick and what I would say to you.
The most important thing, little girl, is that you have some sense of the overwhelming love I feel for you.
No matter what happens in our day to day lives, the tears and the anger, no matter what, I go to sleep at night thinking about you and how dearly I love you.
No matter how bad a day we may have had, I marvel at you.
The fact that I get to be your Mama – the one you cry to when you get hurt, the one who gets to cuddle up with you when you’re sick, the one who talks you through nightmares – that is the greatest thing I have ever achieved.
Whenever we say goodbye, I want you to know that my love for you is more powerful than even I can understand and that will never, ever change.
