dear bebe reef,

I’ve whispered in your ears a thousand times that God picked you out especially for your father and I. I’ve traced the words I love you in your tiny palms over and over again. The two of us have sat many afternoons just studying each others faces. I’ve looked at you so long, I feel as if I should know the number of lashes on your lids and the number of twinkles that fills your eyes.

I’ve come to realize that all I can do is continue searching the rest of my days for new ways to tell you the same things -- that you’ve changed everything. that you are one of my most tangible joys. that being your mother is beyond a gift. beyond a blessing. it is the thing that my life was meant for.

but you’ve heard this all before. and you’ll hear it again. today and tomorrow and the day after that one too.
