Thankful Thursday – Week One

Dear Holden,


This week I am thankful for your grin. You flash those teefies at me and my heart just stops. Sometimes, it catches me off-guard, right before you’re about to do something naughty. And other times I expect it, like when I’m tickling your toes. It doesn’t matter either way, because expected or a surprise your smile always fills me with joy and makes me say a little thankful prayer that I get to be your mom.

No matter how awful my day is, a smile from you can instantly turn it around. I would like to hope that you are always going to be so free with your smiles. Unfortunately, I know that one day – too soon- you won’t smile as much… maybe not even that, but I know that smiles from you are going to be harder to win. And I just want you to know that no matter what I have to do, I will always do whatever it takes to steal a smile from you. Because I love you and your smiles are more precious than coffee to me, and that’s saying a lot. 😉


I will love you forever,
