Grandmothers

“I would say my grandmother would be like my personal god.” Jamie Foxx

Dear Hunter,

Do not ever doubt the strength of love your grandmothers have for you. I watch them hold you tightly, cry when you cry, and live for your joy. You brighten their world with just your presence.

You may wrap them around your little finger all you want. But do not take them for granted. Love them and respect them always. (Note: If you don’t, your dad and I will be quick to correct you!)

Love,

Mom

What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality. ~Plutarch

I liked this so much I had to post it on my blog. Inner achievement is the hardest work around and yet its what really will change our outer world. Loving ourselves unconditionally, ending the negative self-talk, and accepting what is causes others to treat us better, helps us handle life’s stressors, and brings us greater satisfaction with our life.

What we achieve…

Nap Time

…is sacred time. 

Dear Hunter,

You are nine months old this week and right now you are napping. As I reflect on the past nine months, it’s hard for me to fathom how far we’ve come.  You and me.  Being your mom adds a dimension to my life I never imagined. I work on my relationship with you every day, son.  Some days I am really good at it and other days I feel I am lacking whatever it is you need that will help you. 

These early months have been filled with laughing days, learning days, crying days and just-there days.  We wake up with your smiles and giggles. And we go to sleep with your suckling snuggles. The hours in-between are always an adventure.

Last week, you started to crawl and soon you will start walking by yourself. With every new stage, your dad and I are so excited and proud of you. We try to protect you and yet not overprotect you. And sometimes we get it wrong.  So, we adjust and move forward.

I just wanted to take a few moments of this sacred time to let you know how much I love you and how every day I feel lucky to be your mother.

Love,

Mom
