A Mothers Wish...
To My Little Loves
I wish you love without hesitation, even if it ends in heartache.
I wish you courage without arrogance, even if it ends in failure.
I wish you peace in your heart without compromise, even if it takes a while to find it.
I wish you happiness without condition, even if its intensity ebbs and flows.
I wish you life beyond your own, even if it's not born of you.
I wish you sadness so you can truly appreciate joy, Tears so you can truly appreciate laughter, Turmoil so you can realize that you are safe in your own strength, and Loneliness so you appreciate company but also know you are OK alone.
I wish you adventure, even if you journey far from me.
I wish you curiosity that is never ending, even if some questions don't have easy answers.
I wish you faith in something you cannot see or touch, even if the leap to get there scares the hell out of you.
I wish you moments of complete calm in your life, even if those times are fleeting.
I wish for you to find your connection to nature, and to immerse yourself in it as much as possible.
Mostly, I wish for you to know that I have spent every breath cherishing being your Mommy. Every heartbeat loving each unique quality that makes you you. And each day basking in the beautiful light you have brought into my life.
My sweet, precious children. I wish you to know in the deepest core of your being, that my love for you can never be undone. Just as I carried you inside me, you will forever carry my love inside yourself.
