The Best Day

Dear Kourtney, Maggie and Jacklyn,
Do you have any idea how much I love being your mother?  I cherish these days with you more than you'll ever understand.  Today was a little rough.  We got through our school work.....finally.  It was a day filled with deep conversations, plenty of tears, a splash of laughter and a truck load of love.  You girls (Kourtney and Maggie) are very aware of some of the hardships our loved ones are facing right now.  It kills me to see how badly this hurts you.  I love the amazing hearts of love and compassion you have for others.  You are so beautiful.
I heard this song today and couldn't help shedding a few tears.  I don't know what you'll say about your childhood when you're all grown up.  But I sure hope that you know how dearly, dearly loved you are.  You girls are everything to your Daddy and me.  We are so honored to get to be your parents and we really love who you are growing up to be.  If I could spend a day with anyone, I'd choose you girls.  I adore you!
Here are the Lyrics:
The Best Day by Taylor Swift

I'm five years old, it's getting cold, I've got my big coat on

I hear your laugh and look up smiling at you, I run and run

Past the pumpkin patch and the tractor rides, look now, the sky is gold

I hug your legs and fall asleep on the way home.

I don't know why all the trees change in the fall

But I know you're not scared of anything at all

Don't know if Snow White's house is near or far away

But I know I had the best day with you today.

I'm thirteen now and don't know how my friends could be so mean

I come home crying and you hold me tight and grab the keys

And we drive and drive until we found a town far enough away

And we talk and window shop 'til I've forgotten all their names.

I don't know who I'm gonna talk to now at school

But I know I'm laughing on the car ride home with you

Don't know how long it's gonna take to feel okay

But I know I had the best day with you today.

I have an excellent father, his strength is making me stronger

God smiles on my little brother, inside and out, he's better than I am

I grew up in a pretty house and I had space to run

And I had the best days with you.

There is a video I found from back when I was three

You set up a paint set in the kitchen and you're talking to me

It's the age of princesses and pirate ships and the seven dwarfs

And Daddy's smart and you're the prettiest lady in the whole wide world.

And now I know why the all the trees change in the fall

I know you were on my side even when I was wrong

And I love you for giving me your eyes

For staying back and watching me shine

And I didn't know if you knew, so I'm takin' this chance to say

That I had the best day with you today.

This is a great idea. I am looking back and have great memories of raising kids and of course making new memories as well. Wish I would have written more down. It will be well worth the time.

Kelly did you know that BlogSpot you can print your blogs into photo books. I am trying to convert ours since I have blogged for 5 yrs. Yikes! I love the idea. Just getting ready to change things up on ours. You are a great mommie!
