This made me get really emotional because sometimes I feel like my parents could care less about my existence. It made me jealous and happy. It made me hope that my mom feels this way about me.

Just For Today

Just for this morning I won't wash clothes,
instead we will watch your favorite cartoon.
Just for this morning I won't wash dishes,
instead we will color together.
Just for this afternoon I won't watch my soaps;
instead we will go to the park and feed the ducks.
Just for this afternoon you and I will snuggle up on the couch
and watch a favorite movie and eat popcorn.
Just for tonight I will let you help me fix dinner
and I won't yell at you for making a mess.
Just for tonight I won't yell
when you splash water all over the bathroom floor.
Just for tonight when I tuck you into bed
and we snuggle together to read your favorite story
I will hold you a little tighter and a little longer
and Thank God for giving you to me.
