If you could only know how much I love you both, but how could you ever know?
You will never know the real depths of my love, but I can tell you my truths:

I will fight to the death for you. I will fly to the sky and pluck each star out just to give them to you. I would squeeze and kiss you forever and a day.
I would give up my morning coffee for you. I would slay a dragon and then tell silly jokes while holding his still-beating heart in my hand just to make you laugh.
I will buy a remote island and just lay with you on white sand covered beaches. There would be no death or sickness, just joy and happiness to fill our days. There would be endless ice cream with extra cherries and no whipped cream just for you.
I will buy you ponies. I can build you a castle made from candy and live in it forever for you.
I will give up everything I have, just ask me to.

One day I will no longer be on this Earth to tell you how much I love you. But you must never be sad, because I will always be with you.
All you have to do is listen.
When you are old and grey and it is your turn for your spirit to move on, you must not be frightened because you will know I will be there waiting for you.

Just be still.
Be still and listen very closely.
You will hear "Don't be scared, Mommy is here". Maybe you will think you imagined it, maybe you think it was the wind, but know, it will be me.

Maybe then you will know just how much I love you now and forever and ever.

Happy 7th Birthday R & L.

    The endless ice cream minus the whipped cream, that was my favorite part!

  2. That is so beautiful.They probably don't understand the deepness of this letter, but one day they will read it with tears in their eyes.

  3. Threw my tears I type this to you. I loved it. I really truly loved it.
    Your little ones are so lucky to have a mama like you. You are so lucky to have such great little ones like them.
    Enjoy them to the fullest because they grow up way to fast. Mine will be 18 in 38 days (yes, he has them counted out).
    Take care and God Bless!!!

  4. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Happy birthday to your treasures! Now...with one of my own who has a birthday looming, I must go wipe some tears from my eyes!
