Free time? What's that?

I've been writing letters to my child since before she was born. I would just write her about my feelings for her, how we came up with her name, just random things. I haven't been able to write her since she's been born though, because I'm consumed with her. I love it, I love her, I love motherhood, however, I would like to just have a few minutes a day when I'm not caring for her, catching up on sleep or laundry, and other home/mom related things, to reflect. I'd like to reflect on how much she's changed me- how I'm not scared to tell anyone anything if it's in her best interest. I'd like to reflect on how much I love such a small person, and how I would do ANYTHING to protect her. I want her to know that I love her so much it hurts..literally. I've cried thinking about her growing up, getting married, leaving our home, and she's only 3 weeks old! My husband and I are so much closer now, thanks to her. I love seeing him with her. When I see how much he loves her, it makes me love him even more! God has blessed us so much by giving her to us. We are so thankful that she is happy, healthy, and beautiful! Praise God for this little miracle named Kadence. I am off to write her a letter- before she wakes up and stops me!! :)

I think it's wonderful that you are writing her letters. She will be so happy to read those later in life. Can't wait to experience it myself.
