It’s a wonderful life :)

To my darling daughter:
It’s a little bit funny this feeling inside
I’m not one of those who can easily hide
I don’t have much money but boy if I did
I’d buy a big house where we both could live
If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it’s not much but it’s the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one’s for you
And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world
I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they’ve got me quite cross
But the sun’s been quite kind while I wrote this song
It’s for people like you that keep it turned on
So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I’ve forgotten if they’re green or they’re blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen

I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. hugs… awaiting impatiently for details.. but take your time, if I remember correctly this was a very busy time for me too πŸ™‚ between eating, sleeping, showering and posting to lj, make sure you pick the eating, sleeping and showering πŸ™‚

  2. :crying tears of immense joy and happiness:
    Also: ZOMG, now I’m gonna have that song in my head ALL FRIGGING DAY!!!!!!!! Argh! (Won’t be the first time, nor the last, I’m sure!) LOL Better than an Elmo song, I guess!

  3. I’m so happy for you Jaime πŸ™‚ I remember this scary, wonderful, blissed out bittersweet days of welcoming a rainbow baby. I’m just so happy and relieved that she is here, healthy and pink, filling your arms, your life, your heart with love πŸ™‚

  4. she’s so beautiful Jaime πŸ™‚

  5. :::tears:::
    She is so beautiful. I love that song.
    I am so glad these days are here for you, finally. I remember them so fondly and wish you many endless days of snuggling on the couch, cozy nursing naps, and hours and hours of staring at each other in love.

  6. here’s looking at you, kid…

  7. Oh look at the little cupcake girl!

  8. Ohhh, you just made me cry again! πŸ™‚

  9. ahhh it is so apparent how deeply in love you are with her!
    You deserve her. and 20 more just like her!!
    You have so much wisdom as a woman to share with her as she grow and faces the regular struggles in life. I know without a doubt she will not have nearly the same battle you have over come and surpassed. You are going to be the strong support when she needs it (and when she thinks she doesn’t!) and you will never ever lead her astray, you will guide her and encourage her in healthy and nurturing ways that will enable her to grow up to be a very important and forward thinking person. Oh my dear friends have FINALLY got the child they have prayed so much for. You deserve this. You deserved this 2 years ago, but she was apparently bound and determined to be your daughter, and I know it’s for very special reasons. You do your thing and raise her, and watch, she’s going to go places this girl. She’s going to be someone, she is.
    and have you gotten the impression that I LOVE YOUR CHILD. Really, I think of her as mine, you just happened to give birth to her 3 provinces away! xoxoxo πŸ˜‰
    ok between fb and LJ i have just stared at your daughter for an hour. I so can’t wait to get out there and stare at her in person!! lol!
