Not many days remain now…
until you change your name.
And tho’ one might think sadness dwells,
it is pure joy which remains.
To see your peace
and constant glow,
there is no more to ask.
Than to know you’re loved
and cherished so,
by the one whom you will be attached.
One thing I ask to be remembered
one wish I humbly tell.
Watch over this name you’ll soon be given,
remember to treat it well.
Provide it only with honor
and tender loving care.
For God has gifted it to you…
and guided you safely there.
will now be your name
and with God together you will be.
3 strands of cord together…
you shall see.
And I am so very grateful,
that He gave you but for awhile to me.
A true Motherly Blessing,
(for so many years)
of watching over thee.
these hugs n’ blessings are for all the
ballerina tip-toes and fairy houses on the trails,
blanket forts, milkshakes and movies on rainy days,
barn boots, lip-sync, and feather-bed fluffs,
early morning birthday cakes,
bedtime stories with fairytale glitter,
and (of course)
“Whenever a woman is in labor she has pain, because her hour has come; but when she gives birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish because of the joy that a child has been born into the world.”
