I Will Love You…

To My Daughter,

I will love you… through late nights of teething, ear aches, scary movies, bad dreams, and thunderstorms.

I will love you… when you tantrum, hit, bite, tell me you hate me, hurt my heart.

I will love you… when you lie to me for the first time, and the second.

I will love you… no matter how many times you eat food off the floor or ground.

I will love you… as you learn to talk, wrapping your mouth around sounds and forming words.

I will love you… if you fall as you take your very fist steps and clap my hands with excitement.

I will love you… through bullies and backstabbing, hurt feelings and lost friends.

I will love you… when you find someone you love and then through heart ache.

I will love you… when you make mistakes, no matter how many, my love is unconditional.

I will love you… if you decide to go away to school, or not.

I will love you… even if one day you get angry and tell me you do not love me.

I will love you… if your life takes you in a direction that involves you moving far away.

I will love you… if you need to move back home, anytime.

I will love you… when you tell me you’ve turned out just like me.

I will love you… until the end of time.

Leighann (Mumma)

      I hope so.
      One day she’ll appreciate all of the rules, the no’s, and the limits.
      I know I appreciate my parents now.

      Its like you can’t explain it fully.
      There aren’t enough words.
      They will never get it until they have their own.

    This is such a sweet list and when your daughter is older and reads it she will appreciate you even more.

      My mother gave me a letter when I had my daughter.
      It makes me cry every time I read it.

    This is so beautiful. It’s amazing how deep we can love. Amazing that we never felt those feelings before those little cheeks and toes and fingers and bellies entered our lives.

      So true.
      Everyone said to be prepared but you really can’t be, not until you become a mom.
      Amazing.

    I found your post through Shell’s tweet…what a beautiful PYHO! I agree with you about looking at your Mom in a whole new way. I found that as I got older, she was right there looking back at me from the mirror! hehe
