"A mother walks ahead of us
to guide us when we're small,
And then she walks behind us
with a hand in case we fall.
Then one day, when she's taught us
everything we need to know,
She points the way to future dreams
and gently lets us go."
You've taught me so much
about life and love and giving,
and those are lessons
I'll never forget.
So don't ever think
I don't appreciate you
and love you, because I do....
with all my heart.
Thank you for your guidance and love.
I LOVE YOU!!!!!
Let me pause while I puddle up some more.......
That had to be the sweetest thing ever especially considering our journey.
Tonight is a huge monumental night. This will be the first time she has ever spent the night with Papa and Monya!!!! She's really excited. Honestly she was ready in November but it was calving season (my dad's a CPA by day and a gentleman farmer nights and weekends) and that was not something I wanted to expose J to. Not that it's not part of life but pulling a calf from a cow in distress is not pretty and can get very intense (and dangerous) to save them both. I grew up on the farm and still managed to exempt that class.
She wants to go but is a little nervous so we worked out a back up plan. If she's scared at bedtime she can call me and I'll come and get her. If she gets scared in the middle of the night she can wake up Papa and Monya, have them call me and I'll come pick her up. Now she's breathing a sigh of relief and all is right with the world.
