….I was recovering from the biggest shock of my life.
As I healed from the physical pain,
I adjusted to the emotional pain as well.
5 years ago today, I became a mother.
Happy Birthday my sweet Isabelle.
I look at you now and can’t even imagine you as a baby.
I stare into your eyes and realize that
5 years has passed too quickly…way too quickly.
The day you were born,
was the day I learned what love really was.
Your gentle innocence made my life stand still and I instantly knew the meaning of life.
My heart pours when I think of all that you have taught me,
and how your presence made me grow.
Also how your being here, has forever changed my life.
I was there for your first step and for your first fall.
From the hardest of times to the absolute best of times,
I am always there with you.
Soon, you won’t want to hold my hand or give me a kiss.
I know bad words will be said, and feelings will be hurt
and you won’t even like me as a parent nor a person.
But, once you realize that I am here and always have been,
I will hold your hand and give you a kiss once again.
From my companion on the inside,
to the best friend I have today.
I am amazed by you.
You are brave, you are strong, you are kind and compassionate.
And you are mine.
I love you more than I could ever say.
Happy 5th Birthday my sweet Isabelle!
