There are two times a year were I become overly sentimental... during Christmas and at the end of the school year. During Christmas it all begins with the twinkly lights, and the feeling of love and warmth that invades my heart, and my house... I just enjoy watching my girls be girls and seeing my family be a family... It´s like the world is this little perfect place, were everybody loves one another, and anything and everything revolves around family... Christmas simply makes my heart dance and sing!
During this time of the year is a different feeling, is the feeling of not wanting my girls to grow up, of wanting to keep them all three on my lap forever, of wanting life to stand still just for a little while longer. I see Ale moving on to seventh grade, she doesn´t need me to do her hair in the mornings any more, her friends tend to be a little more exciting than us, and well she is twelve, she thinks she has it all figured out by now, There is Emi, growing up and always my sweet girl.. but still I know she is growing, and then our Ari, who will attend her sisters´ ¨big girls´ school this coming year, and even though she is our baby, well... if she is going to her sisters´ school I guess she is not that little anymore. And the emotion begins...
I think I become emotional because my girls are the ones that with their curiosity and wonder make me see the world as a much better place a beautiful place full of colors and possibilities. With their love, innocence and honesty they teach me and re teach me again and again what really matters in life. And as I age, as I start to see wrinkles in my face, is the sparkle in their eyes that keep me young, is their beauty inside and out that make me beautiful, is their laughter that makes me laugh... is their hearts that make me love... it´s them, is being their mom what makes me the person I am and the person I want to be. They make me believe in unicorns, they make me want to climb on a rainbow and find the pot of gold... they just make me happy!
God is definitely amazing, he gives us the chance to relive our childhoods by giving us children, we get to do the things we loved the most again and also to do them better, and maybe we are also able to do the things we didn´t do through them... And so I sit here, and I just want to put on a flowery dress and dance to a happy tune, put a flower on my head, and lay on the grass with my girls only to see what shapes the clouds make for us today! Because really... I can´t seem to find anything more important than this!
I think she just saw an unicorn!
