Every Friday we unite for five minutes. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on hope.
I didn't know it at the time,
how hopeful you would make me.
I didn't realize that watching you fill with wonder, excitement and such joy also gave me hope.
Give me my second chance.
I didn't know that I would be living in two worlds.
One in which my hopes for you, they never end, the other in which my worries for you might make me stop breathing.
I didn't know how much you would be giving to me,
how much I would be learning from you.
Parenthood is the craziest ride I have ever been on.
The joys, hopes, fears, smiles, laughs, tears, screams, they are all endless.
They all wash over me.
But, to my two little faces,you woke me up.
You filled me with love.
You took away so much pain and healed me.
You fixed all of the broken.
You filled me with hope...
for tomorrow and the next day.
You fill me with hope for my future and yours.
You fill me full.
