Love Letter to my Child

Apr 3

Dear Colin,

 I love you more than words can express.  No matter what I love you.  When you fight with Faith in the back seat, I love you then.  When your apple falls from the tree at school, I love you.  When you knock yourself silly falling from the monkey bars when you know you aren’t supposed to be on top, I love you.


 You stole my heart from the beginning.  Before you entered this world, God put you in my heart, and I loved you. When you lose your teeth and smile that toothless smile at me, I love you.  When you slip away to your room only to return in full Peter Pan costume, I love you.  I love that you cuddle your stuffed animals and sleep in spaceship pajamas.  I love the way your hair sticks up in the back if it’s not combed just the right way.  I love every hair on your head.  When you forget to rinse your toothpaste spit out of the sink, I love you.  When you strike out in a baseball game, I love you.  And when you are so busy watching the other team you let a ball roll right past you, I love you then. 


I love it when you ask for “mama-lovin” or when you ask if you’ll always be my baby even though you know the answer.  You are precious to me.  Son, there is something you must understand.  There is nothing.  I mean nothing you could ever do to make me stop loving you.  You may make bad choices sometimes.  I may be sad about things you say or do, but there is nothing you could do to lose my love.  You are my child, my first-born. 


So, when you ask how much I love you and my eyes just sparkle, it’s because I cannot even put it into words.  I love you infinity.



**This could be the love letter from your Heavenly Father to you, as well.
