Q and A on the Trampoline

Posted by Kim on Thursday Apr 28, 2016 Under Tru Moments

We have lots of talks while jumping on the trampoline.

Talks about anything and everything.

This evening you asked, ”┬áMama, how many times does your heart beat in your life?”

“However many times God decides. He designed it,” I answered.

“Mama, how many times will mine beat?”

“I don’t know, but I hope a whole, whole lot. You’ve got a good heart.”

“Probably as many as Poppy. He’s like 80 and I’m just like him.”

“Let’s hope so. You are a little Poppy.”

My Tru

7 years ago this happened…

and it is the best thing that has ever happened to me. No doubt.

I love when I get a package in the mail. It’s exciting, no matter what it is.

Shampoo, dish detergent, or a new book.

Does not matter. Seeing the delivery truck stop in front of the house makes me smile.

That is what every single day is like with you. Like getting a package.

April 26, 2009 I delivered you, but you have been delivering to me ever since.

You deliver the sweetest smiles.

You deliver the boldest laughs.

You deliver quiet moments of thought and conversation.

You deliver wild romps of games and fun and jumps on the trampoline.

You deliver the most tender kindness and the most loving consideration.

Every day you open this beautiful world for me just a little bit more.

You open my eyes and my heart to see that real joy is in a simple moment.

P1090097

The moment when you lay your head on my shoulder as I carry you to the car so early in the morning.

The moment I squeeze you tight at lunch before you push me away.

The moment I see you coming down the hall at the end of the school day.

The moment our heads are side by side on the pillow reading a book as you gently fall to sleep.

You deliver daily packages over and over again.

So many, in fact, I can not keep up.

These moments fly by, so I must slow down.

I whisper, “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

P1090115

You are a gift.

Each moment is a gift.

This life is a gift.

Happy 7th birthday!

I love you too much!

7 years old.

I often wonder how I got so lucky.

7 beautiful years.

7 years of awe and laughter and just pure joy.

7 years of making my heart grow and soften.

7 years of creating this life that is so magnificent.

So splendid.

So preciously big.

7 years of shining your brilliant light into my world.

Making everything better.

Warmer.

Spreading love and tenderness.

7 years of heaven…right here on Earth.

Eat a popcorn snack on the trampoline. Duh!

Friday night fun.

On the beach.

In the sand.

With my boy.
