When given the opportunity to write about my true love, it took me no time to figure out what I would write about. I love my husband and my family but there are 3 true loves in my life, my babies. They are the ones that I would give my life for without a hesitation, the ones that mean more to me than anything in this world.
I’ll never forget the first time I held my son in my arms. Everyone said that the love you feel for a child is like nothing you have ever felt before. It is indescribable. I wasn’t sure what they were talking about. I mean, I already loved my baby. How could giving birth to him change anything? I was wrong. The instant, total and true love I had for my baby was so strong that it brought me to tears. In that moment, my life changed.
And changed again with Joley. Again with Jemma. I had this crazy fear that I wouldn’t be able to love them enough because my heart was so full with my love for Johnny. But, my heart must have just grown and grown because my love for them is just as much as it is for him. When I couldn’t imagine loving another human being as much as I loved my firstborn, another littler person came into my life and changed my mind.
My kids are my true love. They are what I think of first thing in the morning and before bed. They influence my decisions. They make me who I am. I live each day for them. I am a better person because of my love for them. They are who I think about when I am thinking about true love… because what could be more true than the love a mother has for her children?
I always buy my kids a special little gift and we eat pizza by candlelight on Valentine’s Day. This year I will be searching for some Valentine’s Day deals to make our day even more fun. Spending this “love” day with those that I love, my husband and children, is what makes me happy!
