I did not truly know what love was before you entered my world; how much passion could be wrapped in one tiny being.
I had you early in life, only 18 months after graduating college. I barely stepped foot into the “real world” before stepping right back out to spend my days with you. I am sometimes asked if I am your nanny. How I love to watch the expressions when I respond I am actually the mom. I beam with pride to tell them so. To hear you call me “mommy” is the greatest gift of my life.
Do I regret having you young, not first living out a fulfilling career; enjoying a few more years of marriage alone; going out to wine and dine in the evenings instead of collapsing in bed with you?
Not at all.
I cannot imagine anything as fulfilling, as wonderful, as miraculous as waking up with your sweet smile each morning. You are my world, my passion, the smile upon my face. If I die having been nothing but your mom, I will die a happy and fulfilled soul.
Forever my daughter, forever my love, I am completely and totally yours.
