My niece Tara gave me a present, she gave me a book called Someday. When I read it, I began to cry. Tears of happiness and joy, she picked out such a great book. For a seven year old, she amazes me. The book goes through the journey of a child through a mother's eyes. It starts with..................
One day I counted your fingers and kissed each one
Someday you will swing high—so high, higher than you ever dared to swing
Someday I will stand on this porch and watch your arms waving to me until I no longer see you
Someday I will watch you brushing your child's hair
Someday, a long time from now, your own hair will glow silver in the sun. And when that day comes, love, you will remember me
Before bed last night I read the story again to Lotus, it is so very touching. Thank you Tara for such a beautiful gift, I will cherish it always.
