Open Letter to 22

Dear 22,

I see you
In my rearview,
Smiling,
Stark contrast to the crying baby,
I now hold in my arms.

22 I see you,
Twirling in the perfect dress
In your ‘perfect’ shape that you call
A ‘work in progress’…
Unknown of the scars you will bear
When birthing your child…
Unknown of the uphill climb it will take
To get back to this shape,
You may or may not reach,
While you struggle to find,
The ‘now perfect’ dress
That will hide, your imperfections.

22 I see you,
Wake up early 
for your first real job
After a good night’s sleep
While I go on my 2nd day with no sleep
And a sick baby… But 22, I want you to know I adore you,
I am proud of you for chasing your dreams
And smiling against all odds,
Just like how you will smile,
With a sick baby in your arms
Reminiscing about the times you were young
But never for once trade who you have become…
A warrior with battles to fight
A cook that creates a storm at night
A lover who lives to love
And above all
A mom,
Who holds this baby in her arms…
22, I see you.

 

Me on my 22nd bday many years ago haha…

I Never Knew…

Hello Everyone,

It’s been a while since I have been on here and the reason being is that I recently had a baby boy in October. 🙂 We are elated to have our bundle of joy; however, it does limit my time online…thank you as always for your continued support. I will try to be here when I can and check out your posts! Do leave me your thoughts in comments and I will try to get back when I am able!

 

Here is a small piece that I wrote for our son

I never knew my heart could expand,
until your tiny body was placed on it
and I felt your heartbeat against mine…
I never knew my love could grow any stronger,
until I looked at your innocent face
looking at the world for the first time.
I never knew I would stay awake dreaming,
watching you,
with my tired, sleep deprived eyes,
just to see you smile.

My Blessing

I remember the day you came,

I could hold you in the palm of my hands,

your little paws were so tiny,

but you trusted us in this land.

You have grown so much over the years,

but no matter how old you may be…

You will always be my precious blessing,

my little Olie baby.

Oreo celebrated his 10th Birthday last week, the above picture is one of the new toys he got.

Recently he had a vet visit and was told that he may need to get a surgery. We will get a second opinion but I ask all of you for your love and prayers for his good health. He is the best little fur brother in the world ❤ Thank you all and much love to you!
