I can’t remember the last time I’ve written a poem! Today, while snuggling and kissing my almost five year old (how is that possible?!), I had to stop to write this down, because it just hit me. I love hearing their giggles and laughter. I love that they still love kisses (well, at least he does) and hugs. That won’t always be the case.

Just thought I would share it with you.

I'm a Christian wife to an amazing man and a stay-at-home-teaching mom to four special & incredible boys (13.11, 12, 10, & 8). I’m messy and cluttered, but working on that (really, I am!). I’m a discouraged perfectionist and a classic procrastinator who probably has both ADD & Autism, so I tend to jump from topic to topic (and activity to activity) without notice. My Love Languages are Words of Affirmation and Physical Touch. I’m an INFP who enjoys friends but loves to be alone. I love getting and giving hugs, and encouragement is a Spiritual gift of mine that can too-easily be turned into the weapon of discouragement, if I’m not careful. I enjoy writing, singing, words, drawing, photography, digital creations and reading. Oh, and pizza, tacos and steak. Now I’m hungry. That reminds me; I eat gluten free and try to avoid white sugar and GMOs as much as possible.  Find me on Facebook (Writer page) (Fan page) (Community group), Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and Google+.

    1. Thanks so much, Lux! I love how it turned out.

  1. Love this. As an empty nester I know time flies by all too quickly. Thankfully my kids 20 & 23 1/2 still let me hug them. The eldest will actually wait until I let go to let go of me.

    thanks for the smile


    1. Thanks so much, Marie! Glad you got a smile out of it. 🙂 And thanks for sharing it with moms right in the thick of it, too. 🙂
      God bless!

  2. I love this poem! I was wondering if allowed if I can use this poem to make a wooden sign for small business commercial use?
