Dear Colin,


You are my greatest teacher to date.
I know this and yet still..... I forget sometimes
Until nights like these and you remind me
of all that this world is about
Learning, growing, changing
Working towards being the best we can be

I am better for knowing you
I am better for your guidance
I am thankful for you

We rocked a long time together tonight
I listened to your words
so simple and pure and honest
Thankful that you make me better

I tucked you in bed, almost asleep
Kissed you on your forehead and said,
"I'll remember this conversation"

You won't.
I will.
And I will always be thankful.

Oh Jessica, this is just so sweet. Your boys are so lucky to have such a thoughtful and loving mom.
