My love for you is simple, sweet one…
I promise to love you.
I promise to love you during times of pure elation and the challenging days you may tackle along your journey.
I promise to support your vision, not what I dreamed for you but your dreams and desires.
I promise to shelter you yet give you space and the freedom to grow.
I promise to protect you while allowing you to also fail at times.
I promise to share openly with you and not allow secrets to ever get in the way.
I promise to hug you and kiss you each day and probably more than you would like.
I promise to try my best to make you laugh while offering a safe space to be your authentic self without a worry in the world.
I promise to love you each and every day, from your very first breath to my very last and then continue to surround you with love.
I promise you all of this and more.
For you are passionately adored beyond any boundary.
I vow to you…
to be honest,
a safe haven.
I vow to validate you,
watch over you and
pray for you daily.
My love for you is simple, sweet child…
it’s simply being your mama and loving you.
pure and simple.
