To all of you lovely mama's out there, I want to wish you a beautiful Mother's Day. You deserve all the hugs, kisses, flowers, and giggles in the world. I hope you are spoiled on your day.
As many of you mamas may know, I'm completely baby c-r-a-z-y. I dream about having my own children one day. I am patiently waiting (my husband may disagree, haha) for that special day to come, but when it does, I know I will be on top of the world. So until then, I live through each of you and your gorgeous daily lives as mamas, hoping to document that timeless beauty for you. I cherish you, and your babies.
'Someday' by Alison McGhee and Peter Reynolds is one of my absolute favorite children's books. My own gorgeous mama gifted me this book not long ago, making it even more special. I owe all I know as a daughter and wife to her, she's the best. If you haven't read this book already, I've shared it's story below. Grab the tissues sweetheart, you're going to need them.
One day I counted your fingers and kissed each one.
One day the first snowflakes fell, and I held you up and watched them melt on your baby skin.
One day we crossed the street, and you held my hand tight.
Then, you were my baby, and now you are my child.
Sometimes, when you sleep, I watch you dream, and I dream too...
That someday you will dive into the cool, clear water of a lake.
Someday you will walk into a deep wood.
Someday your eyes will be filled with a joy so deep that they shine.
Someday you will run so fast and so far your heart will feel like fire.
Someday you will swing high - so high, higher than you ever dared to swing.
Someday you will hear something so sad that you will fold up with sorrow.
Someday you will call a song to the wind, and the wind will carry your song away.
Someday I will stand on this porch and watch your arms waving to me until I no longer see you.
Someday you will look at this house and wonder how something that feels so big can look so small.
Someday you will feel a small weight against your strong back.
Someday I will watch you brushing your child's hair.
Someday, a long time from now, your own hair will glow silver in the sun.
And when that day comes, love, you will remember me.
