today is the day...
and there is so much left unsaid, not that i do not want to say it, just that i can't, not right now. for i know if i open my mouth and try i will just break into tiny pieces and fall apart, and i am trying oh so hard to hold it together, so instead i come here to say what i can't voice, but want you to know.
thank you for coming, for staying(almost 5 whole years), for being oh so very cold and snow bound when you dislike both. for playing, for coloring, for kicking ball, for hunting beach treasures, for swinging little ones over waves, for getting down and being their friend, their love, their nanny. thank you for your unwavering support and encouragement on all the days, good and bad and back again. thanks for the help on the sick days and your cheer leading in the big moments. for the date nights and the pizza "hunts". for the chocolate cakes and coconut cream pies. for letting us lean on you, never complaining once.
love love love love love love love you.
with all my heart
and with all of theirs.
travel safe and steady.
and may you land with your feet in warm sands and warmer surf. find new beach treasures.
until we see you again, soon.
thank you mom.
i love you,
