Letter to my son

Dear Baby,

If anything ever happens to me before I can tell you this, I’m writing it down so that you will know.

First and foremost, I love you.

I love you with the ferocity of a bear and the gentleness of a butterfly.

You are my greatest gift ever given to me and I thank God daily for you.

Secondly, I will always love you and accept you.

Just as you are.

No matter how you identify.

No matter your sexual orientation.

No matter who you love.

Love is love and I will always support you.

It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks or says, if you are happy and healthy, that’s all that matters.

Thirdly, please be kind. Be kind because that’s what makes a difference in this world. Kindness is never wrong.

Fourthly, be wise. Wisdom is priceless. Let God be your guide, as He is the wisest of the wise. Strive for wisdom. Seek it out. It will serve you ten thousandfold.

Lastly, you are wanted. I’ve wanted you before I even knew you. Before I even tried to have you, I desired you so. I wanted you more than anything in this world. You are that important to me.

I will always want you.

It doesn’t matter how old you get or what you do or where you are.

You will always be my precious child.

You will always be mine.

    I hope he learns that whenever he is human & makes mistakes in his pursuit of passionate life, love, wisdom & joy that he remembers to be kind to himself. To lean on his mumma bear. To allow her unconditional love to embrace him regardless of his age or his perceived faults or any sense of conditioning the world may try to put on him throughout his life.

    There is much love and kindness in the world, but our sense of self it hugely affected by how we are nurtured and the co regulation we feel with our care givers growing up. I’m so glad he has you (especially with the benefits of all your mental health training/knowledge especially re: attachment theory etc. that most parents don’t have) & the massive amount of love you have to give.

    It’s so wonderful to hear of your bond with him & whether he ever gets to read this or not. I have a feeling that he will know with every fibre of his being just how deeply he is loved & if you model such things to him, (inclusive of being kind & loving to oneself) he will simply follow them as they will be second nature to him.

    Take care & enjoy. 🥰
