Behind starburst eyes

To My Children

on May 1, 2013

From the moment I knew each of you was on your way I have spent every moment of my days and nights devoted to you.

I anxiously awaited your arrivals,

I have pondered for countless hours a million different aspects of your upbringing, from the largest facet of child rearing to the most minute of choices,

I have made countless phone calls for counsel on the best way to handle various situations I found myself immersed in due to being your mom, searching for the best solutions for each of you,

and I promise you that I shall continue each and every day to be the best mother I can to each of you…

I’ll go hungry so that you may eat,

I’ll go cold so that you can be warm,

I’ll go without sleep so that you have time to dream,

I will fight for you so that you are safe,

I will stand in the shadows so you learn how to shine,

I will find time when none exists to do whatever needs to be done to see your faces light up with joy,

I’ll endure whatever hardships are necessary so that you always have what you need no matter the cost to me,

At the end of it all, I will let you go with a smile upon my face when it’s your turn to fly; Knowing I did every single thing that I could to help each of you reach your fullest potential as the amazing individuals that you are…
