I want to tell you today...

December, 3rd 2008        Shailen and Chloe:

If I died tomorrow

I would want you to know that you are the light of my life.

Your smile alone can make every worry turn into dust and float away.

You are the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.

I love you more than words, more than I can comprehend.

I could spend days upon days smelling your head and cuddling with you.

That my favorite sound is your voice, and your feet.

You will never need make-up to make you beautiful.

You are so smart.

I am so proud of you.

Jesus loves you more than I do, I don't know how that's possible, but I know that it's truth.

I want to tell you today that I am so happy that I have you.

That I feel like the most lucky Mommy in the world, that I got to be yours.

That you are stunning, inside and out.

That I don't care what it took to get me here, I'll take it.

I want to tell you to dream.  To dream so big.  Don't let anybody ever tell you different.

I want to tell you today that I love your laughter.  That my goal is to hear your laugh every day. 

I want to tell you that I wish I could bottle it up, slow down the clock, and see, smell, and experience it all more. 

You'll never know what you do to my soul.  Well, not until you have a little extension of yourself that you get to call your own.  So for now, know that you are the best thing to ever happen to me.
