My Eyelash Wish for My Children on Mother's Day

I started writing my blog as my own personal release, and it's since transformed into a whole new beast of its own. It's evolved into something that I want my boys to be able to look back on and read (even the raunchy parts) so that they can really know me as a mother. The mother I am today, is not the mother I will be in 20 years when they might look at what I've written. There are things I do, that they probably never know I do or will remember.

I love to watch them sleep, and brush their hair off their forehead. I sometimes pick them up when they are out cold and rock them, just because. I smell their hair when they snuggle up onto my lap, even if somedays it smells like dirty little boy. I ache at the thought of them not needing me anymore. My heart is heavy with the thoughts of them one day leaving our home, never to live here again.

But one thing I want them to know, because tomorrow is never a guarantee, I make an eyelash wish for our family every time it presents itself. My husband doesn't even know I do this. Yesterday a lash was laying on Jayce's cheek, I picked it up and made the same wish I've been making since Jason and I were engaged. I closed my eyes and silently spoke, "I wish for our family to be happy and healthy and together forever," then blew the eyelash away. I've done this more times than I can remember, and most of the time without even thinking of it.

I am the product of a broken home, my parents divorced when I was in kindergarten. I have a sister I don't speak to. So my little family is everything to me!

I want my boys to grow up learning how to love others, because they see how their daddy and I love each other and them. I want them to always have each other. Even though there will be fights, and disagreements, and other people will come into the picture, family is always first. I will make them hug it out, even if they are 45, because there is nothing in this world that is important enough to break this crew apart!

So for this Mother's Day, we have no plans. Everyone is still too little to have a full understanding of the day. We will snuggle and watch Mickey Mouse, and mama might get to take nap. But rest assured, if an eyelash falls, I will be sure to make a wish on it!
