While I always carry you with me, I keep you in a safe place in my heart. A place that’s secure. A place that I fully open only when I’m ready for the flood of love and emotion that washes over me.
Tonight, the door swung open wide; music serving as the key. It had been too long.
Immediately sadness and joy collided. Pondering, longing followed.
I wonder why God chose us. Why He chose me to be your mother and you to visit for such a short time. Words are inadequate. They elude me. Answers run just beyond my grasp. But this I know: I’m thankful that He trusted me with your life. I’m thankful that you will always be part of me. I celebrate you and the new life you represent. You are a precious gift, treasured and loved. I love you, sweet girl, and look forward to the day that I hold you again.
Love always, Mom
