Eight years back....


Eight years back, I held you in my arms for the first time. Pressed my lips against your soft cheeks. Stared at the perfection that was in my hands.
You took away my sleep. Cried so much, you made me feel like a failure for the first time in my life. But every time I looked at you, I marvelled at how anyone could have produced you.
I cheerfully submerged my identity into yours. Gave you my love, my time, my everything. You belong to me as much as I do to you.
Thank you, for making me a mother.

A nice tribute to your son. He should have this framed and hung in his room!

LOVE! And what a perfect summation of how it feels. For me it was nine years ago, but when I tuck them both in to sleep together, I see both those little baby faces so well. It never changes. ((hugs)) to you, my friend~ :o) <3
