I know, a morbid thought.
|Always a ham!|
I want them to know how much I love them.
To have no regrets.
To live a life that makes them happy.
To know that their parents aren't perfect, but darn well think they are.
To know that we are very proud of them already, and they should always be proud of themselves.
The list could go on and on. I have been so lucky to have the family support I do. I have really been able to raise both of my kids they way that worked best for me at that time without any outside pressure. I sometimes wish that I had been able to do more of the things for Wildman that I have been able to do for Sweet Pea, but I know I was doing what was best for all of us at that time. Plus, I don't think Wildman could have turned out to be any more wonderful than he already is.
|The loves of my life! I can tell they will always be there for each other!|
I remember having to write to my future children when I was in college. I wish I could find that letter and see what I thought I knew then and compare it to now.
I have so many wishes for my kids, but I know they will travel the path that is best for them. I just hope that I will always be there to help them when they need help, guide them when they need guidance, and to hold out a hand and help them dust themselves off when they stumble.
Make sure you tell those you love how much they mean to you everyday. Especially your children, for, while adults may have years of memories of your time together, your children live in the here and now. Make it count.
