‘You were the size of a poppy seed when I fell in love with you, barely a blip on the ultrasound screen. In an instant, I knew life would never be the same.’: Mom shares sweet ode to daughters

“I never believed in the notion of love at first sight, but when they first laid you on my chest and I looked at you through the tears, I knew it to be true. Unconditional, infinite love. When you are old and gray, and I am older and grayer, when the world has long stopped seeing you as a baby, I will look at you and still see the one I rocked in my arms. And I will love you.”

‘You’ve seen me blow up and shed tears on my pillow. Please forgive me for not being more patient and gentle with your spirit.’: Mom apologizes for unstable emotions during pandemic, ‘I will focus on your little heart instead’

“I’ve lost my temper and unstable emotions have got the best of me. I focused on the panic and fear instead of the issues going on in your little heart. At the end of the day when you’re tucked in bed, I watch you peacefully sleeping and I’m so grateful God gave me you.”

‘My daughter was emergency rushed back into the states from El Salvador. As she showed me all her photos, it occured to me: we have everything we need.’: Woman urges us to ‘count our blessings’ during quarantine

“Everything has shut down. Most of us are going to spend weeks, maybe months feeling restless, worried, and angry. While we’re stuck in our places, take a good hard look around and see all we have. These commodities are BLESSINGS we forget to count.”

‘A man in his 60s got behind me in line as I frantically loaded the conveyor belt. ‘Looks like you’re going to need another cart,’ he said and nodded to his own.’: Woman shares act of kindness during national panic

“Walmart started closing its aisles. I was overwhelmed and my baby barely fit in my overflowing cart. I was shoving bagged items on the floor and back of the cart when an older man approached me. ‘I’m going to push your cart to your car. Don’t say no.’ It was pouring rain. I nearly cried right there.”

‘I would choose you and this life a million times again, even when I’m tired.’: Mom insists she’d choose her kids even when she’s grumpy, frustrated, ‘Always and forever I am yours’

“Even when I am grumpy in the morning reaching for my coffee. Even when you climb into my bed and I wish for just ONE MORE hour of rest. When it comes down to it, as I look at your sweet face asleep against your pillow…this is the most beautiful journey. I am so grateful to be right here in this moment with you.”
