I am already missing you.
Your singing and laughter,
Your innate creativity and playfulness,
Your ability to wonder at the world.
Your boundless heart,
Your relentless determination to be the best version of yourself,
To care for others, for social justice,
Your discernment and intellect.
Your deep and abiding commitment to friends
I think all parents hope their children
Will be better than than they are,
But I already know that you are completely yourself.
And I am so very grateful to be your mother.
