My Promise to my children...

Thursday, November 15, 2012

For as long as I live I will always be your parent first and your friend second. I will stalk you, flip out on you, lecture you, drive you insane, be your worst nightmare and hunt you down like a bloodhound when I have to, because I love you. When you understand that, I will know you have become a responsible adult. You will never find anyone else in your life who loves, prays, cares & worries about you more than I do. If you don't mutter under your breath "I hate you" at least once in your life, I am not doing my job properly.

    Uggggh. Don't like that at all.

    My promise to my son ~ as long as I live ~ I am your best friend. I will be yours, to listen to you, understand you, stick up for you, guide you, protect you, be your safe place in a scary world and protect you like a mama bear because I LOVE YOU! When you understand that type of love you will never feel alone and you will become a happy, healthy, confident, responsible, loving adult. You will NEVER find someone who loves, cares, and IS there for you more than me! If you ever hate me even once in your life - then from the bottom of my heart I am sorry for not doing my job. I promise

    I promise to always make sure that you know you matter. And I will never stop making you aware of this fact.

    I promise to love you even if you are unlovable in the moment.

    I promise to be there. Not just physically, but emotionally as well. Nothing is more important to me than being there for you.

    I promise to keep an open mind when talking with you. I know that you are not me and therefore I realize that you process and handle things differently then I do, and that’s alright. I will keep talking with you until I understand you, completely.

    I promise to guide you spiritually. I promise to respect the path that you choose to walk with God.

    I promise that when I make mistakes (and I will) I will always apologize and ask you for forgiveness.

    I promise to celebrate you. Every birthday, every first, every accomplishment, etc. I will celebrate YOU.

    I promise that you will always see love in my eyes. When you walk into the room, you will see that you matter in my eyes.

    I promise to laugh with you and be silly with you. I promise to show you that laughter is important in life.

    I promise to hug you with intent. I promise that you will feel my love in those hugs.

    I promise to always want to know you. I promise to talk to you about the different changes, paths and adventures you will find yourself on. I promise to always be interested in your life.

    I promise to always hug you and say, “I love you” when leaving each other.

    I promise to let you be the person that you were born to be with none of my own expectations laid upon you.

    I promise never to speak badly of you to anyone for I know that your struggles are part of your life’s lesson and I respect that.

    I promise to listen to you when you speak. I promise to stay quiet inside and not listen while waiting to speak myself. I will truly listen to what you are saying.

    I promise to respect your decisions, even if I don’t agree with them. I know that we are different souls having different human experiences. I promise to always remember that my path isn’t your path.

    I promise that should everyone else walk away, I never will. I will never turn my back on you. Ever. I promise to always welcome you home with open arms.

    I promise to care for you when you are sick.

    I promise that should you fall, I will be there to help you back up. When you are weak, I will be your strength.

    I promise to love you with no strings and with no conditions.

    You, my child are my heart and my soul. I carried you physically inside of me and fell in love with you before I ever held you. And I promise to carry you in my heart with a love that knows no ending – only a beginning and a forever.

    My beautiful child, my miracle…for you…I will always choose love.

    You are being the type of parents I had so let me thank you from the entirety of my heart as both my parents are gone now. When your children are adults, the friendship will come as a product of your being their parent first.
    I wish more people parented like you. emoticon
