I Love You Forever

I love you forever

That is the title of this post, and what it written so beautifully on a sheet of paper pictured above.

I recently visited my little ones in Texas, (they live with their Dad), and they both were making me pictures, or as you see above… writing me little notes.

My daughter is the artist and put together some adorable cards for me, she is 5 years old so you can imagine just how cute her little drawings were. I absolutely love each thing she made for me… they are fun, creative, and a wonderfully heartfelt.

My son wasn’t in the “artsy” mood but decided to write me a couple notes… and this was one of them. First he came over to me and handed me a sheet of paper that said “I am going to miss you”… so sweet and heartbreaking at the same time… sadly, both the children know my visits have to come to an end and it is something we talk about each day I am there. It truly hurts my heart. I work with them and use “mindfulness” techniques to help keep us in the present moment and not project into the future when I must depart… which hurts my heart so much, as it does theirs. Most times this technique works, and it did this time with the exception of a day or two.

Anyhow (sorry about that little tangent) my son walks over and hands me another sheet of paper… the one pictured above. It beautifully said, “I love you forever.”

It stopped me dead in my tracks and the tears just came on their own… it was impossible to prevent them, nor stop them. I grabbed my son and pulled him close to me, squeezing him tight, and in a hushed, tear-touched voice I told him that I would love him forever and  more. I then sang “I love you forever, I like you for always, as long as I’m living, my baby you’ll be.” This is a song I use to sing to him as a baby and toddler, borrowed from a childrens book with the title “I love you forever.”

This touched my heart deeply. There is no love like the love for your children…

    1. xo, thank you. I got some sad news while I was there too… My little ones are moving to Germany for a few years. Trying to remain positive and remind myself of the positive things. I may do a post about it.

  1. This is truly one of the most beautiful I have read. So truly depicting just how strong and wonderful family ties can be. I’m so happy for you that you have children who truly understand and appreciate their mother as they do. You are, indeed, a very unluckily lucky woman and as already stated: a very strong one.

    I’m far from an emotional person, but I’d like you to know that this truly did touch me in a very deep way. Thank you for sharing your life events. They are incredibly appreciated and always a pleasure to read. ❤

    1. Steven, thank you for reading. I am happy that I can evoke these emotions within you. While this little note my son gave me is beautiful, it is bittersweet… a reminder of how much I miss out on in their lives. However, as greedy as I would like to be and fight to have them with me… I must think about them and put their needs above my own. They are in a stable, loving, healthy environment… not that they couldn’t have that with me, but at what cost would it be to act on my selfish desires. I love them to death and I will always put their needs above my own.

      Thank you for your comment, it truly touched me as well. I am indeed “unluckily lucky”. 🙂

  2. This is very touching, Muse, and I can truly relate to how the love for our children make us feel…my daughter is 21 and my son, about to turn 18, and my love for them is even deeper now…but I remember when they were as young as yours and those are such precious times. Thanks for sharing this lovely post! xx
