Chairs and I-Pop

Posted by Kim on Sunday Jul 10, 2011 Under Uncategorized

New becomes old and life goes on.

Except…

when you find new ways to drink your ol’ fave drink the I-Pop.  (That’s what you call it.)

New becomes old and life goes on.

Except…

when you find some ol’ chairs on the side of the road and clean them up and find them a little spot in the house, like they’ve always been there.

New becomes old and life goes on.

Except…

it doesn’t.

Not with you.  You mix things up.   Keep things fresh and fun.

Make ol’ ordinary things different.  Polished in a way.  Ever changing.  Exciting.  New.

New becomes Tru.

Trains, Trucks, and Love…Just Like That

Posted by Kim on Tuesday Jun 7, 2011 Under Uncategorized

Love is a strange and beautiful thing.  Love can surprise us.  Just like that.

We often have no control over what our heart falls in love with and no explanation for why.  We just do.  Just like that, it’s in us.  Singing.  Whispering happiness to the very soul of who we are.

I Love you.  Sometimes those words are said out of habit.  Sometimes out of expectation or desperation.  But every time those 3 little words fall from my lips to your ears, it’s the purest, most honest and meaningful thing I’ve ever said.  I say it and I say it.  Just as I breath in and out.  “I love you, Tru.”  That’s it.  Yet, boy does it mean a lot.

During your bath tonight, I said it.  “I love you, Tru.” Just like that. Without hesitation…for the first time ever…you looked at me and said…”I love you, mama.”  Just like that.  For a whole second, or hour, everything froze.  I exploded inside.  Just like that.

Rain or Shine, Day or Night

Posted by Kim on Monday May 9, 2011 Under Uncategorized

Today as we rode around the neighborhood on the golf car and your little head was rested on my shoulder as you peacefully drifted off to sleep, I thought about how I feel about being your mom-mom (that’s what you’re calling me these days).  And know what I realized?  Today, Mother’s Day, is absolutely no different to me than any other day of the year.  Every day is Mother’s Day to me.  Every time I look at you my heart beats a little bit faster.  Every time I look at you I feel like I’ve just gone to Vegas and hit the jackpot.  Played the lottery and won.  Rubbed a magic lantern and a genie granted me all my wishes.  You are my golden ticket.

Tru, I love being your mom more than anything!  I tell you a billion times a day “I love you”, but it still isn’t enough.

Maybe one more time…I love you!

Saturday, 2:30 PM – Playground Perspective

Posted by Kim on Sunday Mar 6, 2011 Under Uncategorized

I’ve been going to this playground for days and days.  Years and years.  It’s the playground at my school.  I’ve only ever seen it through the eyes of a teacher.  Until today.  I saw it through the eyes of your mom and it was a totally different place.  A new world.  Like somewhere I was visiting for the very first time.
