Our future is bright. As you lay here on my lap sound asleep I can't help but smile and think of when a little dude that looks just like you is laying there too. You help me more than you know. Your small words of assurance build me up stone by stone that I may be a stronger woman one day. You make me courageous. I want to see the world and push my limits in the pursuit of the most amazing life we'll share. You are strong. You wipe my tears and console me (for whatever ridiculous thing I'm crying about). But all the while you call out where I can improve not giving me the opportunity to feel bad about myself or swim in a sea of self pity. You are everything I have always needed. You make me better and bright.
