“To the world you may be one, but to one you are the world.”
14 words that sum up how I feel. No one could possibly understand a love like this until they have created a child. I know because I was that person. I’ve loved all my life. All sorts of things and people, but nothing, absolutely nothing even comes close to the depth of this love in my heart since you slid into my life. And while I’m fairly sure most parents feel this way about their child, deep down I still feel my love for you is way greater. It’s impossible to describe. You are my world…
even when trying to poke me with the fire iron
because there’s always warmth
even when sticking your dirty feet on the table
because there’s always a smile
even when playing with your food
because there’s always peace
even when throwing handfuls of mulch at me
because there’s always fun
even when pelting me with snowballs
because there’s always an angel
even when getting sprinkles everywhere
because there’s always something delicious
You are the world to me for 854,350,291,583,682,091 reasons.
I love you too much.

Here’s a day to celebrate, yet it’s no different than any other.
Because I celebrate you every day. Every. Single. Day.
Your smile. Your eyes. Your toes. Your laugh. Your voice. Your skin. Your fingers.
I celebrate all of you. Every. Single. Day.
I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Every. Single. Day.
I can’t look at you or hear you or be near you without pausing quietly to say a thank you because you are mine.
Mine. My beautiful boy.
Mine. My Truzie Brown.
Mine. All mine. Every. Single. Day.
I love you too much!

This post is inspired by a favorite book of mine, The Secret of Saying Thanks, by Douglas Wood.
“The heart that gives thanks is a happy one, for we cannot feel thankful and unhappy at the same time. The more we say thanks, the more we find to be thankful for. And the more we find to be thankful for, the happier we become. We don’t give thanks because we’re happy. We are happy because we give thanks.”

You got your boots and cap and stickers on. You’re all ready to go outside for a walk, but you forgot one thing…

Your smile is my heartbeat. I’m instantly younger and happier. A child myself.
You play and my whole world lifts. It shines and sparkles and everything is rainbows and butterflies.
You think and all is possible. In quiet concentration with secrets all your own.

There are not many reasons I give up moments with you, Tru, but I just had my first night away. Yikes!
One thing I have learned is how precious moments are. How few we really have. And how very fast they slip by. There was a beautiful moment in my niece, Emily’s, life that I just had to be apart of…her wedding day. So, I left. I kissed you bye and I drove away. Far, far away. Millions of miles away in love miles. So far, in fact, that my heart didn’t beat quite right. But I’d have you know, it was a beautiful day of beautiful moments.
A beautiful bride.

This bed is too small.
This bed is too big.
This bed is juuuuuust right.
You turned 2 today and we filled your afternoon with the things you love most of all. I can’t help but realize that in your 2 little years of existence you’ve managed to teach me 2 really BIG life lessons.
1. You know what you like and you are happy with what you have.

One summer long ago
I worked at a beach,
a wonderful beach.
I moved, got a job, and the wonderful happened:
I met your dad.
