As I was trying to get some house hold chores done yesterday: laundry, dinner prep, picking up to name a few I had a little lady come up behind me and say, “Mama, will you cuddle with me?” Now, I could have easily said to her, “Sorry, Mama has a lot to get done so I can’t cuddle with you right now.” Instead, however, I knew what was most important in that moment. My daughter. Although, I was feeling behind in my chores already, I gladly took her hand and we walked into the living room. We proceeded to sit on the couch together and snuggle under a warm blanket. First we read a few books. Actually we read 6 books and then we picked out a movie to watch together on Netflix. We decided on watching a classic, Charlotte’s Web. E has never been told the story of Charlotte’s Web & I had never seen the Nickelodeon movie version of it. It was a hit and E & I had great dialogue throughout the entire movie, shared laughter, and a few tears (more so coming from my end). Snuggles with her are by far the best and something I cherish. They do not happen as much as they used to and I know they will continue to get less and less frequent as the years go by. By the time I got back to my chores, it was about 4 PM and I was left with little motivation to do anything but finish making our dinner. Oh well! However, I had no regrets with how I chose to spend my time, as the time I shared with my daughter was precious and created a memory. I want my daughter to feel and know she always comes first. She is the most important and will always take priority over anything.
E you are my priority: Now, Always & Forever. I love you to the moon and back. Thank you for asking me to cuddle with you yesterday. We had the best time together! It warmed my heart. I feel like you teach me so much about life and what my true priorities are. I am thankful you are apart of my life and I am blessed I can call you my daughter and you can call me Mama. And what an honor it is to be your Mama! I wouldn’t trade it for anything. XOXO.
