Week 9 – We Are Proud To Be Your Parents

My dearest Miss AOI,
We are proud to be your parents – I am writing on behalf of daddy because he is always on about you. Every day that passes you make our head bigger than ever. We pray for happiness, love and life for you.week30 I love, LOVE, LOVE you, love you SOOO much. Though you are out of the womb, like flesh and bones, we are merged together as one. You are my everything and I cannot live without you. One day you will experience such feelings and it will clear what I mean by this, my dear daughter.
This morning after feeding you I decided to read some of my favourite bloggers and I was directed to Melissa Jordan’s letter to her son. For me it was a sign that you will not mind me sharing my feelings one day. In her letter Melissa wrote:
“God knew I could use a little humility. God knew our family could use a little magic. […]” Melissa Jordan
She was inspired by Arianne Segerman’s deep poetic story in which she wrote:
“God makes children so specifically for us, each of them.” Arianne Segerman
Re-reading some of the letters I wrote to you whilst still in my womb make me feel good. Without knowing it God guided me to write some words that I would have not thought about. Each day that I sat down to write he gave me a message. Each letter was spontaneous and after you were born I understood the greatness of Almighty’s protective wings. One letter that stands out among the many is Week 34+5day=Perfection Is Not All. You see I never prayed for perfection, I prayed for your health, life and happiness. In that letter I wrote:
“Little child, life is not about striving for perfection but more about laughter, love and living life to it fullest. Also, […] I would like you to remember that you are the LIGHT even when you feel like you are surrounded by darkness in this world.”
But these two ladies’ stories encouraged me to share the words I penned in my journal twelve days after you were born. The language is poor, it lack poetic flair or power but they convey my fragmented thoughts in that moment.:fragmentedthoughts
I enjoy every second, every minute, every hour, every day and every week with you in my life. By the time you will read these letters you will know that I have many words written about my feelings in my offline journal. That I have some answers ready for you in case some people ask you cruel questions. Among the list I wrote:
“I asked God to make me humble. Because God knows I am already strong with one.”
I could go on and on, but as I said before sometimes less is more. But before I conclude this letter I would like to say that your beautiful shines from inside out and you are our bright LIGHT in this life…  dolcesmile1 dolcesmile
and we are so proud to be your parents.changes
All our love and pride,
Mummy and Daddy
