Even without my words, you always know what I need.
When I am hurting or afraid, frustrated or weary, you gather me home into the safety of your arms.
You know what makes me smile and fills my face with light.
You make me happy when you sing my favorite song and sweep the
softness of my favorite blanket across the curve of my cheek. And when
you take me for walks and I feel the warmth of the sun, the cool breeze
brushing by my skin.
You ignore the words of others telling you what I cannot do, and then fill the hours of every day telling me what I can.
Every day, you see other kids doing more, yet you celebrate me.
Pushing away sadness, you focus on the hope of my future. You let my
simple, small steps lead us forward.
Never standing still, always in motion, you move before me. Your
planning, protective and positive, prepares me for success -- meeting
new people and new everyday challenges.
... and Mom, in case I ever go before I can whisper my words of
thanks, or wrap my arms around you, know what I know: That before you
someday soothe me into heaven's sleep, with you, I live the fullest life
and I see the world through your understanding eyes. With your gentle
touch, you fill my life to overflowing with the greatest kind of love."
Love , Noah
