I’ve been meaning to share some stills from the video session, but when mom shared this poem to her kids the other day, it was just the inspiration I needed to get on the ball. These words to her children are straight from her heart, but I think any parent can relate:
I wish you rainbows
And lollipops of every hue;
I wish you miles of family walks too.
I wish you bubbles to greet you at your door;
And rays of sunshine to keep you warm.
I wish you puzzles with every piece;
And that you still find wonder in the tiniest treat.
May you always have a bed or ball on which to bounce;
And an old laundry basket to hop in and be pushed about.
That you always find the perfect hill down which to run;
And a still lake to pitch rocks on.
I wish you big boxes in which to hide;
An imagination to fill them with treasures inside.
Let there be birds and soaring planes to watch overhead;
Your favorite song on the radio that makes you bop your head.
I wish you a full belly, and a strong, gentle heart;
And that sticks and stones and words not tear you apart.
I wish you laughs from tickled toes;
And blushing smiles that only innocence can know.
I wish you nights of the most restful sleep;
And days that fulfill your innermost dreams.
But most of all, may you always know,
The memory of my hugs and kisses deep within your soul.
With all my love,
