Why I'll Always Hold My Son
Philosophical thoughts, deep thoughts I have them often. Today’s deep thought has to do with my son.
Today my son woke up from his nap and reached for me to hold him. A thought occurred to me of how perfectly he fits into my arms. He’s nearing four years old and throughout the years as he’s grown we always fit together, constantly growing together. That one thought put me on a different wave length of how we were made for each other.
I know how cheesy that sounds because I am the queen of cheesy and more than ok with it!
That one thought ties into another thought or rather a point of view. Most people see how much I hold my son, carry him and cuddle with him. Some see this as spoiling him. It’s true in many ways I do spoil him. As that’s the case with many children. However, I see it this way. My son still wants me to hold him, hug him, carry him, play with him and cuddle with him. There will inevitably come a day when he will not want to do these things. As of right now, I am doing what I can to enjoy these precious moments with him.
I’ll admit when he was really little I was in a messy place so there are many precious moments I feel I missed. Now not only am I in a better place but I appreciate these moments more. When I hear him laugh it warms my soul. When he hugs me and tells me he loves me just because, it melts my heart. When he falls asleep I sometimes cry to see such a beautiful face that I had the pleasure and privilege of creating.
One philosophical or deep thought leads to many more but that’s my mom moment of the day.
Enjoy your children while they are little. They are precious and grow quickly.
