Wonderful You*s*





Wonderful You
One day big bear said to small bear
"There's something you should know...
I made a wish ,and you came true,
and now I love you so.
You're the colors of my rainbow,
the honey in my tea...
You're butterflies and lullabies,
you're everything to me!
You're bright blue skies on sunny days
when we take a walk at noon.
You're shooting stars on summer nights,
you're a ring around the moon.
Let's hug the trees and ride the breeze,
let's gather stars and share them.
We'll talk to birds and learn their words,
we'll string some shells and wear them.
Let's name the clouds and dream out loud ,
let's ask a fox to tea.
Well thank the sun , and just for fun
we'll wave to bumblebees!
You are my child , my precious one-
special in every way...
I'm filled with the wonder of wonderful you,
and I love you more each day."
~Kate Gleeson

I came across this poem while browsing creative blogs and it made me smile. Like any mum, I adore my children. I have built my world around them and prefer their company to most anyone else's on any given day. I know how fragile life is and I never want to take ONE single moment with them for granted. If something were to happen to me tomorrow, I would leave this world knowing that my kids have their little lifetime of memories of their mum tucking them in every night, singing their song....playing with them and cuddling with them everyday. They won't be little for much longer...so I cherish those stolen moments when I bury my nose in their necks and breathe in their little kid scent...and when they climb on my lap asking me to hold them...

Happy childhoods last a lifetime....I can only hope that the happy contentment that I see on their faces when I tuck them in at night will be remembered when they are grown and mommy is long gone:)

I love you my little muffins:)
