How Great Thou Part

A Love Letter to My Children

I’ve never needed to be right.

What I tell my children is to remember what I did right.

Remember the moments I caught myself distracted and not listening to what made your world go round and I stopped and heard your precious voice.

Remember the moments I sang to you in the car while the rain poured down and I made the rain seem equal to the sun.

Remember the moments when the normally peaceful me raged like a lion in your defense.

Remember the moments I read you a story and I told you the world could be yours.

Remember the moments when you forgot who you were and I was the loudest reminder in the room.

Remember the moments I kissed your boo boo’s and you knew that love could heal all.

Remember the moments that I woke you up ever day and your grin reflected the joy in my face.

Remember the moments when the world seemed scary and I told you it wasn’t and I was the safest person you knew.

Remember the moments you sensed you were grown and I was both happy and sad.

Remember the moments you left the safety of home and I told you that soon you would be happy and free even without me.

Remember the moments when we were together and all seemed right with the world and I told you not to worry that time would capture it all.

Remember the moments when you were mine and I was yours.

Remember the moments when LOVE unequivocally met LOVE.

They were by far the grandest moments of my life.

I will carry them with me and my hope is that you will carry them with you as well because for all too short a time they were the best of joy and the best of moments and the best of time………………..

And forever and ever until memories cease me, they were the best of moments that passed far faster than the love I possess.

So please, whatever you do, remember me as I remember you and remember the moments because absolutely…………….

Forever and ever I do and forever and ever they were never enough because that’s how much LOVE………I have for you.
