A love letter to you.
On December 9th at approximately 3:42 pm on a Wednesday, you came onto this earth. And since then, my life has ever changed.
You might wonder why I’m only writing to you and not Collin.
Well, in my heart, I know the past year has been a struggle for you and our family.
Sometimes I think we get so caught up in life’s daily to do’s and your brother’s needs that I know you feel forgotten.
But this is a letter to you to let you know I do not forget you.
I want you to know how lucky I am to have you in my life. You are funny, smart, and silly. I sometimes wonder if you know how incredible you are?
You are a thoughtful son and a loving brother.
My love for you is fierce and unchanging. No matter whatever you might face, the darkest storms, or the brightest rainbows. I will always be by your side. And those times when life can make you angry, confused, or struggling to find yourself, I promise to love you even more. And when you think I can’t possibly understand, I hope you realize I just might.
My mom, your Nana, would tell me when I was little, “I loved you before I even knew you.”
So remember Jonah, I love you on the good days and the bad days, and everything day in between; I love you whole heartily.
