I love you more than words can express. No matter what I love you. When you fight with Faith in the back seat, I love you then. When your apple falls from the tree at school, I love you. When you knock yourself silly falling from the monkey bars when you know you aren’t supposed to be on top, I love you.
You stole my heart from the beginning. Before you entered this world, God put you in my heart, and I loved you. When you lose your teeth and smile that toothless smile at me, I love you. When you slip away to your room only to return in full Peter Pan costume, I love you. I love that you cuddle your stuffed animals and sleep in spaceship pajamas. I love the way your hair sticks up in the back if it’s not combed just the right way. I love every hair on your head. When you forget to rinse your toothpaste spit out of the sink, I love you. When you strike out in a baseball game, I love you. And when you are so busy watching the other team you let a ball roll right past you, I love you then.
I love it when you ask for “mama-lovin” or when you ask if you’ll always be my baby even though you know the answer. You are precious to me. Son, there is something you must understand. There is nothing. I mean nothing you could ever do to make me stop loving you. You may make bad choices sometimes. I may be sad about things you say or do, but there is nothing you could do to lose my love. You are my child, my first-born.
So, when you ask how much I love you and my eyes just sparkle, it’s because I cannot even put it into words. I love you infinity.
**This could be the love letter from your Heavenly Father to you, as well.
