I often sit and wonder

To: Collin
From: Mommy
I often sit and wonder
I often sit and wonder what you would say.
I have a feeling that you would talk for days.
Would you tell me that it hurts so bad,
Or would you say I love you mom and dad?
Don't worry my son I know what you want to say
You tell me in your own special way.
The way you wrap your arms around me tight.
The way you smile as we cuddle every night.
I often sit and wonder what you would want to be.
I have a feeling you would say I just want you to be proud of me.
A teacher, a great leader, a sales man or a fireman?
But there was someone who had a much bigger plan.
Don't worry my son I know what you were sent here to be.
A special gift to love and cherish just for me?.
No, you had a special mission from the day of your birth.
A special angel sent to teach of peace and love to all of us on earth.
I often sit and wonder how I can be so blessed
And If I am passing this very important test.
To love and protect someone so special and dear
To trust in God's will and trust that he is near.
Don't worry my son I will walk beside you every step
And when you are weak in my arms you will be kept.
You are my special angel and were sent to me on loan
But for all eternity a family we will be known.

Beautiful, did you write that? It wouldn't surprise me. You know just how to put things. When ever I write-(and say something as a matter of fact), it doesn't seem to really come out the way I was really intending it to. So sweet, and I love the pictures. You are awesome!
