FREE WRITE: For my daughter… prompt: I REMEMBER…

I remember when you were sleeping in your crib and I was staring at you. I was filled with so much love.

You were helpless…
You needed me…
You loved me…
You never wanted to leave me…
You depended on me for everything…

What I wanted most for you was a happy life. And I am the one who has benefited from that wish because COURTNIANA you have made me unbelievably happy.

Today…

You are not helpless…

Today…

You need me… just in different ways than you did before… and I AM HERE!!! I am here for whatever you need…whenever you need me.

Today… you love me… and OUR LOVE IS DEEP!!!

Today…

You STILL don’t want to leave me… and that just means I must’ve done something right!!!

Today…

You depend on me just in a different way… and I DEPEND ON YOU!
