Slow Down

S L O W  D O W N

I want to hold my baby while she’s still a baby

I want to feel her little fingers wrapped around my hand

I want to hear her feet as she runs around the house

I want to listen as she talks to her brother in a soft & gentle voice

She’s growing so quickly, becoming a beautiful little girl

I pray that she never questions how much her dad & I love her & how much we treasure each moment with her

I pray that she always seeks to see the best in everyone

I pray that she continues to be a bright light in a dark world

I pray that she loves as fiercely as she laughs

I wish I could bottle up her giggles, one of my favorite sounds

I love listening to her imagination as she plays on her own

I love her big cheesy grin

I love the way she runs to the door when dad gets home

I love the way her face lights up when she sees her grandparents & great grandparents

She is so pure & filled with so much love & light

I never want to forget the way her arms feel when they are wrapped around my neck in a big Quincy Bear hug

I never want to forget how peaceful she looks as she’s sleeping, dreaming of her future

I never want her to lose that child-like innocence

I never want a day to go by without her hearing how much she is loved, cherished & treasured

She made me a mom & I will never be able to thank her enough for that

I hope as she grows she carries her family with her always

I hope she is always kind to others and looks out for those who don’t have a voice

I hope she always knows that she is a daughter of the one true King

I hope that when she grows up she will always come back home

I want to always be her safe place, her home

Slow down time, please
