NaBloPoMo; loving you!

“I love you too”.
Just before slumber and after kisses on every inch of my face this is my sweetest lullaby.
I’ve heard it before and cherish every note. The everyday I love you’s consist of Sofia following mine by a “yes”, a kiss and a “grande” hug. Although, This time was unrehearsed; innate; and she needed me to hear it.
This is why being a mother is a treasure, an honor, a series of lessons that change your being in the most surprising ways.

I will go to watch my daughter play soccer today with an extra bright sparkle in my eye; with a freeing giggle when she places the ball not two inches from the bowling pin she intends to knock over. I’ll run by her side while she navigates the entire field as the other children stay close by the child size nets, dribbling the ball like a pro with her pig tails tousled.

“I love you” is just one of the ways I will share my vast adoration for all that she is. Sofia will feel it from every gentle touch, from devoted time, silly time, rules, and talks we have; just you and me.

Love is best shared and shown in the simple gestures. The care to make another persons day great or give just what they needed.
Empathy.
Listening.
Connecting.
Embracing.
Supporting.
Honoring.
Being.
