After Mother's Day

It's been quite some time since I actually wrote a letter to Oscar, Bella and Tittle, but I feel compelled to write letters today, not just to them, but to all my kids and my wonderful husband.

Dear Jon,

Thank you so much for the beautiful Mother's Day and weekend. Thank you for taking care of the housecleaning and laundry so that I didn't have to worry about it at all. Thank you for letting me take my luxurious nap on Saturday. Thank you for cooking me a delicious breakfast yesterday with Gus, and then taking care of lunch and dinner, too. Thank you for trying to teach Gus to love and appreciate me for all that I try to do or him and you. Thank you for being a great dad and helping create our four beautiful children.

I love you,

Dear Oscar and Bella,

Thank you so much for making me a mom. It was because of you that I first entered motherhood. I'm sorry that I didn't get to bring you home so that we could spend our time together. Thank you for being my kids. Thank you for having me as your mother. I hope you can feel how much I think of you, love you and miss you every single day.

I love you,

Dear Tittle,

Thank you, Tittle, for giving me a fun way to incorporate you into the family. Every time I see camo, or am sneaked up on, I think of you with a smile. I wish I could have had you longer. I wish I could have brought you home. I wish I could have seen your beautiful face. I hope you are having a wonderful time with your big brother and big sister, but I wish you could be down here with us and your twin.

Love you lots,

Dear Gus,

Oh, Gus. How you have brought joy and laughter into our lives. How I wish you could have your siblings here with you. As much as your brothers and sister hold special places in my heart, so do you. You made me a mother on earth. You have given me the chance to raise a living child. You make me laugh, really laugh, at least once a day. Thank you for making me my special breakfast with Daddy. Thank you for giving me big hugs and cuddling with me on the couch. Thank you for being you. You are a light in my life. A light that I can touch and hug and kiss and know.

I hope you know how much I love you,

  1. You deserve more days like mothers day. I just wish I was able to do that for you more often. Like I said in your card, you are a wonderful mom, and a wonderful wife.
