A Letter to My Children Whom I Never Wanted
By tonihammer on June 26, 2014
You two have also taught me a very important lesson. The most important lesson.
You have taught me to love myself.
You don’t judge me because I stayed in my yoga pants all day or haven’t showered in a week. You don’t think I’m a failure because I burned dinner or didn’t vacuum. When I discipline you, once the tears are gone and we’ve hugged it out, you’re smiling and laughing as though nothing happened. You don’t hold grudges. You don’t hate me.
Your simple, untamed love has taught me to give myself the grace I give you. And from the bottom of my heart I thank you both for that lesson. Through your love for me, I am learning to love myself.
I’m so thankful for both of you, my pink line surprises. You two have my heart and my lifelong gratitude.
